On Friday 28 June 2019, IPAA ACT hosted a Future Leaders Series event with Gordon de Brouwer PSM and Jane Halton AO PSM in an 'On the Couch' discussion. Both former Secretaries reflected on their experiences in the public service and provided key points on 'what they wish they had known' when starting their careers. The event was hosted by the Future Leaders Committee and held at IP Australia, Discovery House. Terry Moore, Deputy Director General at IP Australia provided a Welcome to Country.
