Roundtable discussion: Leading high performance agencies through uncertain times

Public sector leaders are at the forefront of a rapidly changing and digitalised world of work.  Never before has smarter leadership and deeper insight been more important.

How do agencies and their staff adapt to this era of disruption and embrace opportunities to achieve high performance?

How do leaders empower their agencies to refocus their mandate, to optimise how the public sector keeps pace with change?

Join us for a round table discussion on where you see the public service heading and how your leadership can shine a light on optimising performance.
