The theme for the Conference is Fed Up Federation Reform: Impacts and Opportunities.
The single most important reform to impact the Australian public sector will be the outcome from the current Reform of Federation. The White Paper has the potential to significantly change not only public sector activities, roles and responsibilities but also the way these services are delivered to Australian citizens.
The two day program re-imagines how the public sector might look as a result of Federation reform and explores the skills those working in, and with the public sector, will need in this changing environment.REGISTER TODAY
