IPAA Victoria’s 3rd biennial Public Sector Week kicked off on Monday 19 August with 4 amazing sessions which inspired, challenged and entertained hundreds of public sector professionals in attendance.
The four sessions delivered on day one were:
How can the public sector support Aboriginal self-determination?
Has Australia lost its success mojo?
Is community engagement a waste of time?
The Great Debate: who is the best fictional public servant (or government lawyer) from film and television?
Tickets are still available for some sessions for the rest of this week. See the program and register now to be a part of these important conversations with your peers!
