What’s In Store for 2023

After a smashing success in 2022, Public Sector Network is excited to bring back Innovate Australia Showcase in its 9th edition – and this time we will be collaborating with EY to deliver the 2023 Showcase. 

This Showcase will bring together 700+ federal government leaders and influencers to converge, decipher and navigate the next frontier of emerging innovation and strategic direction within the APS. 

Join us in March 2023 as we unveil and examine break-through data and digital technologies, people strategies, and pioneering approaches at the forefront of public service progression, and what’s required to usher in the next realm of potential.

Check Out the 2022 Highlights
