About the event:

Women in Local Government leadership roles are confronted with a diverse set of challenges relating to the management of staff, engaging with the community and dealing with budget constraints. Due to this, it is crucial that women in leadership positions utilise their unique skills effectively in order to maintain a positive public image, manage employees with authenticity and meet diverse stakeholder expectations. The Women in Local Government NSW Leadership Summit 2014 will offer an exceptional array of speakers who will share the challenges they have experienced and overcome throughout their career, as well as their stories of achievement and success. The summit will provide delegates with the opportunity to share ideas on how to achieve a work / life balance and explore methods of leadership development to cultivate influence and build trust both within and beyond the organisation. The core objective is to provide delegates with the skills required to better manage the demands of their multi-faceted roles, whilst ensuring optimum effectiveness and satisfaction as leaders.
