Each year, in addition to our general program of activities, we run flagship events.  These flagship events provide insights about the challenges and opportunities facing the public sector. 

The events bring together people from across the diversity of the NSW public sector, as well those working in the Commonwealth, private and community sectors.
Our flagship events include:

CEO/YP Breakfast
