The emergency management sector in Australia is under increasing pressure in response to a number of emergent risks ranging from climate change to population growth and rising terrorism threats. As a result, the cost of cleaning up natural disasters is estimated to surge to $40 billion by 2050. With an increasingly connected and technology enabled society, our world is becoming more reliant on virtual communities and services to obtain the information necessary to make critical decisions. It is within the context of these challenges that this forum will explore the future of emergency management leadership.
Akolade’s inaugural Emergency Management Leaders Forum features high level national and international thought leaders from a range of industries who will share their best practice strategies for ensuring world class emergency service delivery. The conference will also provide delegates with robust understanding of key elements necessary for embedding strong leadership and resilience for effective preparedness and response.
