‘A year of Looking Back and Moving Forward’ with Dr Marie-Louise Ayres, Dr Mathew Trinca AM and Dr Rachael Coghlan

As COVID-19 changes the rules of access, how do our cultural institutions remain vibrant, relevant, and resilient? In this special episode of  Work with Purpose, leaders from three of Australia’s best-loved institutions describe how they, and their teams, met the challenge.

Doubling down on purpose, seeing COVID-19 as an opportunity for innovation and staying close to local people were three of the successful strategies employed.

Dr Marie-Louise Ayres, Director-General of the National Library of Australia; Dr Mathew Trinca AM, Director of the National Museum of Australia; and Dr Rachael Coghlan, CEO and Artistic Director of Craft ACT: Craft and DESIGN Canberra Festival, join us to share their insights at this IPAA Future Leaders conversation.

This episode is hosted by IPAA Future Leaders Committee members Megan Aponte-Payne, Assistant Director at the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, and Michael Sanese, Manager of People and Organisation Consulting at PwC.

Discussed in this episode:

  • How to keep teams connected to maintain morale, ingenuity and innovation
  • Using COVID-19 as an innovation driver across complex organisations
  • Maximising digital and physical exhibition opportunities to keep serving the public
  • Keeping organisations aligned with their vision, mission, and objectives throughout changing circumstances
