On 8 December, we heard from keynote speaker Professor Glyn Davis AC, Secretary of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, who delivered the Annual Address to the APS, together with Peter Woolcott AO, Australian Public Service Commissioner who closed the event. Professor Davis’ keynote address focused on stewardship and how the APS has steered the government through a number of transitions in 2022, and what it takes to do this effectively.

The Annual Address to the APS was chaired by Justine Greig, Deputy Secretary, Defence People, Department of Defence. Rebecca Skinner PSM, Chief Executive Officer, Services Australia and Jim Betts, Secretary Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts will sat on the panel.

Dr Caroline Hughes provided the Welcome to Country. Dr Hughes is a proud Ngunnawal woman and Executive Director, Collections Services Group at AIATSIS.
