The NSW Education Department is the largest provider of public education in Australia. It is responsible for delivering high-quality public education to more than 800,000 students across more than 2200 schools. Leading such a large and complex organisation is an extraordinary challenge and this discussion will explore the path that has led Georgina Harrisson to her current position. What were the formative experiences that have shaped her view of the world, how does she understand the relationship between political and public sector leaders and what are her perspectives on leadership in the public sector?

The interview concludes with a brief Q&A session with live questions from the audience.
