The Mandarin

Description

The Mandarin is for public sector leaders and executives and the many stakeholders and suppliers interested in their work. We want The Mandarin to be the place that connects and helps public officials manage Australia better — for intelligent showcasing, discussion, collaboration and learning about public work and the people and many challenges behind it.

By providing a thoughtful and respectful venue for the discussion of policy, programs and public projects, The Mandarin enables department and agency heads and their executives to share current issues and challenges facing public administrators in a complex, demanding and rapidly changing world.
