Event cancelled.

It is with much regret that UTS and CPD have had to cancel the seminar with Professor Charles Sabel. Unfortunately, Professor Sabel has had to withdraw from all events today. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to guests planning to attend.

FREE panel discussion with leading US thinker Prof Charles Sabel. Book NOW!

Panellists: Jane Treadwell, Nicholas Gruen & CPD’s Travers McLeod.

Trends shaping this century will challenge the role and function of governments like no other. We are already seeing some impacts of accelerated, structural change in the global economy. Ageing populations, fiscal pressures, resource scarcity, automation, connectivity and systemic risk will require agility and innovation in the design and delivery of public goods and services.

CPD is delighted to be partnering with the University of Technology, Sydney, to host Professor Charles Sabel, a leading international expert on how government and industry can learn and adapt. We are also thrilled that Nicholas Gruen and Jane Treadwell will be participating in the event along with CPD’s newly appointed Chief Executive Officer Travers McLeod to offer specific experience on design and delivery in the Australian context.

Please join us at UTS on 19 February to hear Professor Sabel’s insights – and the reactions of Nicholas Gruen, Jane Treadwell and Travers McLeod – on experimental governance for Australia. Professor Roy Green, Dean of the UTS Business School, will be MC.
