The Public Sector Young Leaders Conference is a unique developmental opportunity for aspiring leaders and new managers.
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.

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.
