Dep Sec Breakfast: Collaborating to achieve great outcomes

Invitation Only Event
Friday 8 December 2023

Please note that this is an invitation only event for senior public sector leaders.

Explore the crucial role collaborative partnerships play in achieving great outcomes. 


In today's complex and interconnected world, the challenges we face require innovative and holistic solutions. 

At this event, we explore the concept of an ecosystem approach to delivering positive outcomes for our communities.

Louise Baxter, Chief Executive Officer of the Starlight Childrens Foundation, will delve into the essential elements of private, public, and not-for-profit sector collaboration to address societal challenges. 

This event will help you unleash the potential of cross-sector collaboration to create lasting impact.


This event will provide practical approaches to implementing a more collaborative mindset in your team’s work.

Louise will share successful case studies and identify effective strategies for partnership-building and sustainable cooperation. 

The session will include Q&A as well as peer-level discussion. At least 25% of this event is allocated to questions from the floor, meaning that you will also play an active part in this discussion.

Be part of a dynamic conversation to drive positive change through partnerships and cooperation.

This invitation-only event is an opportunity for you to explore new concepts with your peers in an open and frank discussion held under the Chatham House Rule.
