    An Armchair Conversation: Organisational Change Management

    Please join us for an armchair conversation with one of the Public Sectors most experienced change communication managers, Jacqueline Gleeson.

    Jacqueline will discuss how change is the only certainty in the public sector particularly in Canberra’s post-election environment. Change requires people to learn new behaviours or new skills – and communication is the key to make it happen. Leadership; clarity on the expectations; an education program and a rewards system are some of the tactics adopted.

    Jacqueline has been has been part of wide ranging changes as departments embrace the digital age; overhaul service delivery systems and restructure themselves. The Communication Branch Manager at the Department of Education and Training, Jacqueline Gleeson will look at the communication lessons learned from these change programs – and lead a discussion on coping with change in the public sector.
