The Shape of Public Service to Come

This event is for Young Professionals only (35 and under).

Shaping Views at the Top aims to facilitate the sharing of ideas and discussion between young professionals and senior leaders.

It is a rare and unique opportunity for young professionals to discuss current and future issues directly with key leaders and decision makers across the public sector. This is a ‘not-to-be-missed’ career opportunity for young professionals in the public and community sectors who want their voice to be heard on the future direction of the public service.

Panelists ranging from high level CEOs and Directors General will present their ideas on the shape of public service to come. This will be followed by a workshop where participants will be given the opportunity to contribute their ideas and perspectives through an engaging, facilitated round table discussion.

If you are a Young Professional (aged 35 years and under) we encourage you to register and share your ideas on the pressing issues facing our State.
