Dr Jill Charker, CEO of ComSuper will talk about how ComSuper is taking the first steps to create a culture of innovation and will touch on how ideas don’t have to be big to have a real impact. Jill will then introduce Paul Lowe, Head of the 2011 Australian Population Census program, who will talk about how the problem of increasing lack of participation in the Census by particular population was addressed through an innovative communications campaign.
