Lambton Rooms, Level 1, Intercontinental Hotel, 1 Grey Street, Wellington

Contemporary public policies are usually understood and practised in rationalist terms: with objectivity, analytical thinking and structured planning processes. The same applies to any long term planning. The role of storytelling tends to be dismissed as irrelevant to the policy process and not worthy of serious consideration. But this seminar will discuss how and why stories are integral to the work of governance and policy making, to mobilising society’s resources towards a shared vision, and to a more engaged and collaborative effort to build a collective future.Read more

Old Parliament House

Knowledge about social behaviour and institutions underpins notable advances in economic growth, technological innovation, health, education, good governance and the quality of life, but it also helps to understand why public policy sometimes fails to improve our lot. Much of this knowledge is either taken for granted or, increasingly, reduced to metrics of impact that belie the complexity of knowledge communication and influence.Read more
