2022 Chief Executives and Young Professionals Breakfast


IPAA Queensland’s annual and hugely popular signature event, the Chief Executives and Young Professionals Breakfast is returning to City Hall in February 2022.

Registrations are now open for this unmissable event!

This year’s theme will explore the power of brain science for making better leaders and creating more human workplaces. The practice of neuroleadership has never been more relevant than in today’s environment of disruption and uncertainty as change challenges our brains.

We are delighted to announce that Dr David Rock, Founder and CEO of the Neuroleadership Institute, will be our keynote speaker!  

Trying to change other people’s thinking appears to be one of the hardest tasks in the world. While the easy answer may seem to be to give people feedback, real change happens when people see things they have not seen before. The best way to help someone see something new is to help quiet her mind so that she can have a moment of insight. As you have insights, you change your brain, and by changing your brain you change your whole world. Dr David Rock, Your brain at work.

The discussion will also feature how neuroleadership is being used in the Queensland public sector with additional speakers to be announced soon.

This event is a terrific opportunity to set yourself up for leading during 2022!
