Brave New World for Government Communications


[By Kelli Browne]

The next few years are set to bring a number of major and significant challenges to public sector communications practitioners along as dynamic new digital opportunities arise and communication and customer service expectations are put to the test.

As the nation’s leading conference for professionals in the government sector, the 2015 Government Communications Australia Conference presents the year’s most important opportunity for those working at the coalface to keep abreast of changes and on top of emerging trends.

Held between 13th May and 15th May 2015 at the Sydney NSW at the Amora Jamison Hotel in Sydney’s CBD, delegates have an unparalleled opportunity to hear first hand from innovative thinkers, learn about changes in our sector, best practice communications, engagement and customer experience and take away practical tools and resources to implement in your own organisations.

Our diverse and exciting line-up of sought after guest speakers include senior government representatives, professionals from corporate and non-profit sectors and leading international subject matter authorities.
