ABOUT THIS EVENT

This deep dive session provides Deputy Secretaries with an opportunity to explore how collaboration can be used as a tool to drive innovation in the workplace.

The session will draw on the insights of two guest speakers from the private and community sectors who have used collaboration to drive innovation in numerous and powerful ways.

The discussion will particularly focus on contexts where getting diverse stakeholders focused on shared outcomes has been critical to success.

WHAT WILL I GAIN?

This is an opportunity to hear the perspective of senior private sector leaders on the challenges and keys to success in collaboration and innovation and explore how these ideas could be applied in the public sector.

HOW WILL I LEARN?

The session will include Q&A as well as peer-level discussion to identify the application the speakers’ ideas, including the nuances required for a public sector context. At least 25% of this event is allocated to questions from the floor, meaning that you will also have the opportunity to play an active part in this discussion.
