ELP Participants will be Meeting with High-Powered Speakers in August

1 minute read

By Cory Campbell, IOG Program Manager, Executive Learning

The IOG’s Insights on Public Sector Leadership series – housed within our year-long Executive Leadership Programs (ELPs) – seeks to develop in public sector executives the confidence and leadership behaviours necessary to collaborate in a complex public policy environment that has multiple competing interests and values constantly at play. Participants engage with senior leaders in government and discuss openly with them the challenges and opportunities they are all facing in a space where levels and hierarchy are set aside in order to focus on delivering outcomes to Canadians. This is especially important at a time when trust in public institutions is under threat and a federal election is shortly underway and with it a new federal mandate. In August, our three ELP cohorts will meet with three speakers as part of this Leadership series.

On August 21st, Cohort 22 will hear from Secretary of the Treasury Board Peter Wallace. Mr. Wallace has a wealth of experience in all levels of government and will provide the cohort with great insights on public sector leadership in a multi-jurisdictional and complex world.

On August 28th, Cohort 23 will have 2 full days with the Honourable Jocelyne Bourgon, former Clerk of the Privy Council, and her team at Public Governance International (PGI) on the New Synthesis (NS) Initiative. Developed by PGI and delivered in the IOG’s ELPs, NS is an “exploratory initiative dedicated to preparing government for the challenges of serving in the 21st century.”

On August 14th, Cohort 21 will hear from Raj Thuppal, Senior Assistant Deputy Minister at Shared Services Canada. Together, they will explore the scope and challenges of public sector leadership in a digital world.
