Deputy Secretaries Deep Dive 4 with Joost de Kock, Alex O'Mara and Kim Curtain
Our collective efforts over the last 18 months have shown what our sector is truly capable of. We’ve kept NSW open for business, allowed the economy to prosper and enhanced the lives of our citizens by offering new ways of engagement.
Now we’ve got a once in a generation opportunity to learn from these extraordinary times and truly do things differently.
NSW’s 11 economic recovery priorities capitalise on and accelerate our sector’s recent innovations. These 11 priorities will reshape the future of government services and the work we do.
Regardless of your Cluster or position, it is critical you understand how each of these priorities will impact the sector and your role in it.
ABOUT THIS EVENT
The fourth of IPAA’s series of five Deputy Secretary Deep Dives focuses on revitalising centres, healthy living and mobility.
This session explores a single priority: encouraging vibrant centres and efficient mobility services fostering economic growth, innovation, healthy living and inclusion.
The panel of Deputy Secretaries will share details of the reform area they are leading including the objectives, initiatives, and barriers to be overcome. They will also share lessons other parts of the sector can apply to improve results and build productivity.
WHAT WILL I GAIN?
This is an exclusive opportunity for the whole sector to understand how these priorities drive recovery and position NSW as the place to live and work.
If you’re committed to playing an active role in the transformation of our sector, this event will give you the understanding and inspiration to do things differently.
This event is part of IPAA’s Doing things differently series which has been developed to help support the development of a world class public sector.
The series is offered free of charge to IPAA NSW Professional and Affiliate members as part of agreements that IPAA NSW has in place with each individual cluster.
While you can register for each event individually, we encourage you to register for all events as part of a package so you can build a deep understanding of the broader strategic priorities of the sector.
