Public Sector Governance Forum 2023

Governance Institute is gearing up for its annual National Public Sector Governance Forum, set to take place on November 21, 2023, in Adelaide, with a focus on key issues in the public sector. This year’s event promises to be a pivotal gathering of public sector leaders, featuring discussions on ethics, trust, inclusion, and the transformative impact of technology.

One of the highlights of this year’s forum is the keynote address by the Commissioner of the National Anti-Corruption Commission, the Hon. Paul Brereton. His insights into the role of the NACC, which is dedicated to investigating corruption, managing conflicts of interest, and monitoring interactions within the public sector, will provide a critical perspective on restoring public trust in government. Recent data from Governance Institute’s Ethics Index underscores the importance of this mission, as public trust in government remains low.

The impact of digitalisation and artificial intelligence (AI) on innovation and the workforce in the public sector will be a prominent topic of discussion at the forum. With technological advancements playing a significant role in shaping the future of governance, experts will analyse the potential benefits and challenges of AI integration.

The forum will also address the aftermath of the Referendum and the path forward for Australia in the wake of the result.

An illustrious panel of public sector leaders and experts will share their insights and strategies at this significant event. Speakers include Ann Vanstone, SA Commissioner of the Independent Commission Against Corruption, and Hon. John Hatzistergos, Chief Commissioner of the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption, among others.

One of the distinguished speakers at the event is Dr. Michelle Perugini, Co-Founder and CEO of Presagen A.I. Enhanced Healthcare. She will discuss how artificial intelligence is a game-changer in the healthcare sector. Dr. Perugini is at the forefront of using AI to advance medicine and promote women’s health, and she will address the challenges and opportunities in this field.

The Governance Institute’s National Public Sector Governance Forum 2023 promises to be a significant gathering of thought leaders and experts, providing a platform for crucial discussions on the future of public governance in Australia. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with like-minded peers, exchange ideas, and shape the trajectory of public sector governance in the years to come.
