Feedback from participants

“Many of the speakers inspired me and absolutely blew me away. I have been to national and international conferences on a variety of topics over my thirty year career. It was like no other conference I have ever attended. ”

“Excellent event and extremely well run. The two Deputy Co-Chairs did a fantastic job and topics were really all relevant. Really like the use of the social media tools. Venue was also terrific.”

 ‘’Great to get out of the office and connect with peers. Our everyday jobs don’t often allow for reflection and time to look at the public service and our role with a different lens.’’
