After a highly successful inaugural event, the Emergency Management Leaders’ Forum brings together Australia’s front-facing emergency management professionals with thought leaders pioneering the latest techniques, best practice and technology to enable effective response to deliver in an emergency.
Australia is no stranger to emergency management, with the sector facing increasing pressure to respond to a variety of natural disasters and rising terrorism threats. Population growth, climate change and emerging risks are forcing the sector to upskill and adapt to deliver effective emergency response.
New technologies and proactive responses to emergency within urban planning and delivery are impacting how leaders perform emergency management function and this forum will explore the future of the sector and how leaders can prepare and lead the way in an evolving world of emergency management.
Join us for the second edition of the popular forum, featuring high level national and international thought leaders from the entire sector to share best practice strategies on delivering world class emergency services. The conference will provide delegates with a robust understanding of what it takes to be an outstanding leader with resilience for effective preparedness and response.
