Quote of the week
“The person who does not ask will never get a bargain.”
— French Proverb
Guess what? You don’t always need to ask for a bargain…because today I am offering you one.
The second annual CGE Leadership Summit is coming up on February 25th in Ottawa. This day-long event will explore the linkages between leadership, Blueprint 2020 and the future of the public service, and I am offering you a real deal related to this timely and important event.
As a subscriber to this CGE weekly newsletter, you will get a Two-for-One deal: for every ticket you buy at just $350, you will get one for a colleague for FREE.
How cool is that?
So, why should you attend?
Well, apart from the line-up of presenters, who include deputy heads and international experts on leadership, we will be handing out our second crop of leadership awards. You can find out more about the event and who will be speaking at www.cgeleadershipsummit.ca.
So, you may ask, what is the link between leadership, Blueprint 2020 and the changing public service? First of all, the public sector has got to change: it is too slow, too expensive, and too inefficient. It simply cannot respond to the challenges we face today in a technologically driven, highly integrated society.
Blueprint 2020’s Interim Report lays out the following priority areas: developing innovative ideas, making better use of time and resources, using technology better, and managing people well.
And for leaders? If leaders in the public sector are to get ahead and make a difference, they are going to have to learn how to work effectively with the priorities, learn new competencies, and move into stewardship roles in which they collaborate with other sectors.
The CGE Leadership Summit will help you make these linkages…and prepare for you for the future.
This Two-for-One deal is only available for the next three days (Feb 12-14). To take advantage, call Sandra at 905-727-4091 x228 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
