The National Investigations Symposium is a biennial event for public sector investigators and complaint handlers run by the Independent Commission Against Corruption, NSW Ombudsman and IPAA NSW.  It provides a unique forum for public officials to increase investigative knowledge, skills and techniques, and offers significant professional development and networking opportunities.  

The 11th National Investigations Symposium was held on 9 to 11 November 2016 and featured thought provoking Australian and international speakers in a plenary session and four concurrent streams and an impressive line-up of speakers.

"The range and variety of the topics covered, together with the 'expert' nature of the speakers, made the symposium an excellent professional development opportunity."

"There were a number of times I had difficulty in deciding which presentation to attend. I think this is evidence that the program was excellent."

 "I really enjoyed it. It was great to meet people in similar lines of work. And the discussion of the various issues in investigations renewed my interest in my work."

"All the speakers were great, and the panels were exceptional."
