Professor Peter Shergold AC, IPAA National President, delivered a keynote address at the 2018 IPAA National Conference on 17 October 2018.

His address — ‘Australia’s Public Sector: Fit for Purpose?’ — drew on the responses of IPAA members to an online survey promoted as part of the IPAA National Event Series which had been held across Australia in August 2018.

Professor Shergold provided the centrepiece of the IPAA National Event Series with an address to IPAA members on the theme of rebuilding trust in public purpose. The Event Series was attended by more than 830 people from each state and territory.

The intent of the survey, which received 817 responses, was to test the pulse of the public sector across Australia. Most of the responses, but not all, were from people who had attended the IPAA National Event Series.
