About The Conference

The theme for the conference is Thinking Differently: Building Trust.

In a ‘post truth’ world, business-as-usual isn’t cutting it. The rules are being rewritten.

Trust in government, our institutions and the corporate sector is diminishing – even as we expect them to do more.

Join celebrated thought leaders and provocateurs to discuss how to think differently and build trust.

Understand how the landscape is changing; hear from those outside government; and discuss how public sector leaders need to adapt.

Our discussion at the Great Hall at Parliament House will include three conversations with leaders from across the public and private sectors and academia.

Confirmed speakers include heads of public sector departments at the federal and state level, respected academics and nationally-recognised commentators. A number of international speakers will bring broader perspectives to the conversation.

A conference function will be held the evening prior at the iconic National Arboretum, overlooking Canberra. The function will celebrate excellence in public administration with the winners of the Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Public Sector Management to be announced, followed by the awarding of IPAA National Fellows.
