About The Conference

The theme for the conference was 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.

On 15 November celebrated thought leaders and provocateurs discussed how to think differently and build trust.

Conference delegates heard how the landscape is changing and how public sector leaders need to adapt.

The discussion at the Great Hall at Parliament House included three conversations with leaders from across the public and private sectors and academia.

Speakers included heads of public sector departments at the federal and state level, respected academics and nationally-recognised commentators. A number of international speakers brought broader perspectives to the conversation.

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

IPAA acknowledges the support of KPMG, sponsor of the conference and Garran Oration, and Telstra, sponsor of the conference dinner.
