Defining Success and Measuring Regulatory Performance

Date: 14-15 November 2023
Location: Online
Time: All day
Email: [email protected]
Overview: An unparalleled learning opportunity.
During this two-part seminar we will be discussing the meaning of “success” in a regulatory environment and the associated challenges of performance measurement and management. Professional regulators and law-enforcement officials certainly deal with customers, and so the normal range of customer-service metrics has some relevance for them. But their principal business is to deliver protections to society against various classes of harm, and towards that end they deliver and, where necessary, enforce obligations, influence behaviours, and manage compliance. The nature of “success” to be pursued and assessed is therefore quite different in the “protective” role of government than in service-provision roles.

Persuasive Public Sector Writing Masterclass

Date: 21 November 2023
Location: Brisbane
Time: All day
Email: [email protected]
Overview: Do your writing skills set you up for success?
While the basic skills of good writing are critical, you need more to meet the demands of more involved government communication. You need to be able to present every case confidently and well, regardless of who you are writing to or what you are writing about. You need to be able to communicate complex issues clearly and with influence. You must be able to use words, structure, flow and more to deliver compelling arguments and convincing information that people will want to read.

Speaker: Bev Sullivan
Bev has decades of experience in running written communication workshops for public servants at all levels and from all tiers of government. Her specialty is helping people to use (and tweak) their existing skills and experience to make writing less of a chore and deliver better results.
