Young Professionals Network: 'Burning Questions and Burning Platforms'

This exclusive dinner conversation will be unlike any of our events so far. It will feature a dynamic group of senior leaders and young professionals coming together over a meal to discuss the burning questions young professionals have for leaders. As well as provide leaders an opportunity to ask any burning questions they have for young professionals. Dinner guests will also discuss how to create a burning platform for change and transformation in the public sector. The burning themes and ideas that emerge from the dinner conversation will shape the Young Professional Network events for 2019.

This is a dinner party not to be missed.

This event is proudly sponsored by LGpro Corporate Partners HR Legal and Insync.

  Online Community

This SIG is supported by an online community. We believe that accessing knowledge from individuals who work in a similar environment is invaluable and should never be underestimated. Our communities are only for people working in Local Government and there are many benefits to participating in them. They are a great way to keep in touch in between meetings, by asking your fellow SIG colleagues questions and sharing resources. You can also see who else is involved in the SIG and get in touch with them quickly.  Agendas, minutes, presentations and other SIG resources will also be posted on the online community.
