IPAA SA’s On the Couch sessions are a series of informal interviews with key public sector leaders to look at the person behind the role. This event is an unmissable chance to hear personal insights from our public sector leaders on what makes them tick and have the opportunity to ask them first-hand about issues that matter to you.
Our Next Guest
Dr Robyn Lawrence, recently appointed as the Chief Executive of the Department for Health and Wellbeing, led the WA Covid-19 response as Deputy Chief Health Officer and Incident Controller. She is now responsible to the Minister for Health and Wellbeing for the governance, leadership and management of the South Australian Health System. We enjoyed welcoming Dr. Robyn Lawrence On the Couch.
All IPAA events include purposeful networking, which allows you to:
• Build relationships with the speaker/s and fellow guests
• Develop your capabilities
• Establish connections across the SA public sector.
