Leadership + Complexity Symposium

Leadership + Complexity Symposium

The Leadership + Complexity Symposium will explore the reality that leadership is a dynamic process increasingly hampered by unprecedented speeds of change that are less predictable and creating unique situations requiring us to be adaptive collaborators.

Produced by Tasmanian Leaders the keynotes speakers include 'a legend of Australian journalism' Martin Flanagan, Anya Reading a Professor of Geophysics and Rod Smith Director of Continuing Professional Development with the Institute of Police Management.

The day will also include workshops from Dr. Polly McGee and Lisa Ryan. 

This is an exceptional opportunity to hear from a number of local and interstate experts who can accelerate your strategic thinking and capacity as it relates to complexity.
