In a rapidly evolving landscape, good governance in the public sector has never been more critical.

Join us for this co-hosted event with Deloitte for a compelling event where experienced public servants delve into emerging trends and share their insights on key governance challenges and opportunities.

Our distinguished panel will address pivotal questions such as:

  • How have risk management practices evolved over the past decade, and have they led to better decision-making?
  • What has been the impact of new technologies and rapid digital transformation on governance? Are we seeing better accountability and transparency, or has it introduced more complexity and hidden assumptions?
  • How does regulation influence governance? Does it support or obstruct good governance practices?
  • What advice would you give to emerging talent aspiring to pursue governance and risk roles in the public sector?

We also encourage anyone in a senior governance position to bring along an up-and-coming governance professional in your department or agency.

This event is an excellent opportunity to network with peers and other like-minded professionals. Lunch will be provided.

What is in it for you?

  • Gain insights from seasoned public servants who have navigated the complexities of governance.
  • Understand the latest trends shaping the future of public sector governance.
  • Get practical advice on advancing your career in governance and risk management.
  • 1.5 CPD.
