The New Government Leader 2014 Summer Policy Conference

What’s the 2014 Summer Policy Conference about?

In an age where citizens expect government to be available to them in the same manner that they interact with companies as consumers, our siloed public institutions struggle to keep pace with an ever-changing, connected, and complex citizenry. What types of skills does The New Government Leader need to survive and thrive in this environment? Join the Institute of Public Administration of Canada for its inaugural Summer Policy Conference. Interact with panels of officials, academics, and expert observers on the skill sets of The New Government Leader.
