2019 BiiG Network National Conference

The Changing Work of Innovation: Next Generation Leadership and Practice for Public Value and Social Impact


Governments around the world and here in Australia are grappling with how to support healthy and resilient societies in the face of complex challenges.  As a consequence, the practical work of public innovation is changing too.


This year’s BiiG Network innovation conference explores both of these dimensions and, in the process, will engage some of the big challenges and opportunities shaping the purpose and performance of the public sector.


Taking place from 29-30 October at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, the 2019 conference will explore the theme of The Changing Work of Innovation – Next-generation Leadership and Practice for Public Value and Social Impact.


Attracting more than 500 public sector leaders annually, the BiiG Conference –a Queensland Government initiative hosted by Queensland Treasury – will this year transition to the national stage for the first time, opening its doors to all of levels of government across Australia and related university and non-government organisation partners.


This unique event designed by government for Government, will explore how the design and practice of innovation is changing across the public sector.


Through a mix of keynote presentations and a comprehensive breakout program featuring panels, workshops and masterclasses, delegates will engage with people and stories from the front line find out about new models and practices of leadership.


The BiiG Network is the Queensland Government’s internal innovation capability network hosted by Queensland Treasury.


Griffith University is the Major Sponsor of the 2019 conference.
