As part of Entrepreneurs’ Week 2018, IPAA hosted a forum to showcase examples of intrapreneurship in the South Australian public sector, and to explore emerging trends and challenges for achieving change, improving coordination and facilitating innovation.

IPAA Members joined IPAA SA and the Intrapreneurship Community of Practice (ICoP) for a snapshot of cutting edge intrapreneurial work by motivated innovators from around the world as part of Entrepreneurs Week 2018.

For the fourth year running the 2018 Intrapreneurship Forum was bigger and better, covering a wide range of Intrapreneurial topics, ideas and real time projects. Participants networked and discussed ideas with colleagues and experts, and attended exclusive workshops in a range of presentation formats.

This years keynote speaker was creative bureaucracy expert, Charles Landry.
