Event description

Description

Following a “Parkinson” style live Q&A format, the Henley Conversations are monthly hosted live interviews with Australia’s top thinkers and leaders. These events will challenge your thinking, broaden your horizons, and provide an opportunity to mix in an informal way with Australia’s most established leaders.

Chatham House rules apply to all Henley Conversations events. Conversations run for approximately one hour.

She is the author of more than 60 publications, including her recent book, Social Procurement and New Public Governance (published by Routledge in 2016). Jo is as passionate about having positive social impact as she is about studying it.
