The forum for Australia’s emerging 
Public Sector Leaders

I’m a young leader; how will
the conference help me?

The conference is designed to equip you with highly practical management tools and techniques and thereby instil the confidence to lead effectively in any situation. High calibre public sector leaders will share their insights on how you can achieve more in your role whilst preparing you for both the challenges and the opportunities that accompany an ever-changing public sector landscape.

What are the benefits for
my organisation?

Leadership development is an important investment for both individuals and their organisations. Over the past eight years the conference has assisted hundreds of public sector managers to deliver increased value in their roles and prepare them for future advancement. 

Utilising insights and advice from inspirational speakers, conference participants will be better able to manage both their professional responsibilities and their key stakeholder relationships. Surpassing the mere transmission of theories, the conference will equip young leaders with the ability to adapt to a demanding work environment, instil the confidence to step up and provide the vision to guide other employees towards peak performance.

Conference aims and objectives

2017 Themes


The conference has been developed for public sector employees ranging from aspiring people managers through to developing young leaders. Delegates will come from a diverse range of federal, state and local public sector organisations across both metropolitan and regional locations.

Each year, hundreds of young leaders from Australia’s public sector gather together for a powerful one day development program specifically designed for emerging leaders. Offering a critical opportunity to step away from everyday demands, the conference allows new managers time to reflect and refocus on their individual challenges and aspirations. 

By exploring first-hand the experiences of celebrated leaders at the forefront of their industry, the conference equips young managers with the tools to excel in the modern public sector, whilst assisting them to make peer group connections vital to career success.

Who attends?

The event is aimed towards ‘emerging’ leaders who are aspiring, transitioning and developing. ‘Young leaders’ are not defined by age as such but attendees include a mix of those who are in early-career leadership/management roles, or more generally those who aspire to progress in their careers and may currently be in formative, co-ordinator or team leader positions. The conference will also be suitable for anyone interested in the future strength of the public sector or any individuals wanting to improve their own personal work efficiency and brand. It is also a great workshop for experienced leaders who need to skill up in certain areas or assist in navigating their leadership journey.
