How Modern Government Works

How Modern Government Works

In a world of mounting political and economic uncertainty, public administrators face an unprecedented range of challenges. Constrained budgets, shifting community expectations, increasing media scrutiny, growing demands for transparency: our fast-paced world is placing pressure on all public sector employees – and increasing our need to understand the fundamental tenets of our modern democratic systems.

For the uninitiated, there is no more qualified guide to the evolution of the Westminster system than Peter Collins. A former advisor to two federal cabinet ministers, currently Director of the Centre for Ethical Leadership, Peter has coached executive and leadership teams across corporate Australia and the Victorian, Federal and NSW governments. In this unique workshop, he brings his boundless insights to bear on some of the most urgent challenges facing our public sector today. Participants are in for an intellectual treat – and lifelong lessons in being a better public servant.
