New ideas about local leadership

A quiet revolution is starting to take place in Australian public life. Many public organisations are shifting their focus away from organisational structures - towards people, and the places and activities that are important to them - at a local level.

This requires a very different kind of leadership, based more around collaboration than on authority.

Such a local 'leadership of place' could make a significant contribution to the revitalisation of civic society in Australia.

This talk will discuss some of the new techniques and initiatives that are being taken up here and abroad.

Speaker: Professor John Fien, Executive Director, Swinburne Leadership Institute.

When: 7pm to 8.30pm, Tuesday 28 October
Where: Hawthorn Library, 584 Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn
