This year’s Frances Adamson Oration will be delivered by Dr Wendy Craik AM FTSE, scientist, public policy adviser, and company director.  

This event is for established and emerging leaders in the public sector who want to deepen their understanding of institutional and individual integrity, resilience, and challenges in the service.  

Join us for a keynote and audience Q&A led by Andrew Metcalfe AO, IPAA National president followed by an opportunity to network over drinks and canapés.  

The Frances Adamson Oration was established in honour of Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC, Governor of South Australia. IPAA ACT established the annual oration in 2022 to coincide with United Nations Public Service Day, celebrating the value and virtue of public service to the community.
