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

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

The discussion 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 a broader perspective to the conversation.

Think Differently: Building Trust

Time
Session
10:00am
Conversation One - Shifting Trust

The public’s ‘death of deference’ to politics, public institutions and corporates has gathered pace over recent years. How is it affecting Australia and the public service? What are the lessons and implications?

11:30am
Conversation Two - Different Perspectives

Commentators across all sectors have different experiences and perspectives of how trust is nurtured, maintained or lost, and how influences in the traditional and emergent social media can shift the discourse. How can the public service respond?

1:45pm
Conversation Three - What's Next?

As stewards of our state and national institutions and guardians of the ‘long term’, do we bunker down or rise to the challenge? Will the same old be good enough? What needs to change, how, and with what authority?
