New ANZSOG classes for future leaders

Start the conversation

The Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) has announced that its Future Public Sector Leaders masterclasses are to return for a third series in 2022.

The new series will have a mix of new and returning presenters offering 12 two-hour masterclasses designed to expand participants’ horizons.

Deputy Chief Executive (Thought Leadership) at ANZSOG, Simon Kent said that after two years of disruption it was a perfect time for public sector leaders to reset their thinking and build their understanding of the broader context they were working in.

“As a public sector leader, you have always needed to think creatively to solve complex problems and deliver public value to your communities,” Mr Kent said.

“Now, as Governments respond to the long-term social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in an increasingly ambiguous environment, it is even more important to have the knowledge, creativity and confidence required to provide informed and timely advice, and lead others through change.”

He said the new series gave access to some of the best academics and practitioners who would supply a frank and up-to-date analysis of the challenges Governments were facing, and new ideas that could be taken back to the workplace.

“The series is designed in a ‘choose-your-own adventure’ style which gives participants the choice to sign up for one masterclass or the whole series,” Mr Kent said.

“The two-hour virtual seminars are designed to fit into a busy workday, while still allowing participants the chance to share ideas with peers from other Agencies and jurisdictions.”

He said surveys of past participants found that 90 per cent agreed topics were contemporary and relevant to their work, and 85 per cent agreed the packages provided the flexibility they were looking for.
