Event description

Description

The AASM QLD Hub is delighted to announce a research seminar by Professor Jeff French, PhD, MBA, MSc, DipHE, BA, Cert.Ed.

Professor French will be joining us in Brisbane to share his top 10 key considerations that anyone working in contemporary social and behaviour change areas should consider. This seminar will offer relevant insights to those working in government, the not-for-profit sector, and practitioners working in industry, as well as academic researchers, students, and anyone with an interest in behaviour and social change. How might you use these insights in your own change work? Are any of the current trends relevant to the work that you do? Do you think that there are additional contemporary issues that need further attention from our field? What opportunities exist in this space moving into the future?

Following Jeff’s seminar, a Q&A discussion session will offer participants an opportunity to ask questions and engage in further dialogue with Jeff as well as with other seminar attendees on the ideas presented.

Places are limited, so please RSVP by 29 April 2019 for catering purposes.
