Government Boards in Australia - What Works Best and Why?

- A Two Day Course

Jane ran a 2 day course that compared and contrasted public and private sector boards and examined how to select, support and evaluate public sector board practices for best practice governance in Canberra.

Also directing the course was professional board member, governance consultant and author of All Above Board: Great Governance for the Government Sector, Julie Garland McLellan.

The course was designed for public servants who are involved in governance or work closely with boards, recently appointed and aspiring government board directors as well as interested parties outside of the public sector who would like to learn about the workings of government boards.
