You're invited to attend a free seminar with Ken Baxter, Commissioner, Australian Productivity Commission at Carnegie Mellon University at 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm on Wednesday 24th October 2018.
He will discuss the seismic corporate and public sector shifts, particularly for the Indo-Asia Pacific region, caused by President Trump upsetting of ‘the rules of the game’.
Closer to home, Ken will have some practical advice for public policy practitioners on how to deal with politicians, Ministers and ministerial staff; the structure and operations of government departments; and ownership, control and management of State owned- enterprises.
Ken Baxter is one of Australia’s most senior and respected figures in public policy. He is the first person since Australia became a nation in 1901 to have served as the most senior public servant in both the New South Wales and Victorian Governments. He is currently a Commissioner on the Australian Government’s peak policy advisory body, the Productivity Commission.
Ken’s various policy roles at the national and state levels have included extensive experience in the reconstruction, funding, sale, re-organisation and operation of government owned organisations as well as devising and implementing fundamental microeconomic reforms in the energy, transport, infrastructure and agriculture sectors in Australia, Papua New Guinea, South-east Asia and the Indian sub-continent.
Ken will be participating in an Executive workshop here at CMU-A on 24 and 25 October. While here, he has kindly agreed to be the guest at a public policy roundtable for CMU-A’s PPM community. The subjects for this roundtable will range broadly.
This session will be conducted in roundtable format with participation from attendees encouraged.
Sandwiches will be provided.
RSVP: 5 pm Wednesday 17th October 2018.
