Work with Purpose | Special Edition | 29 April


April 2021 marks the one-year anniversary of Work with Purpose. To celebrate, we’ve released a special highlights edition featuring some of the remarkable insights shared with us over the past year, from some of our most popular episodes with speakers from across the public sector.

In this episode we pay homage to the Australian public sector as it took centre stage delivering the Australian Government's agenda, supporting the Australian community and the economy throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We share some of the key themes that resonated across the public sector throughout 2020. We also bring insight into the lives of those people who kept the wheels ably turning during these challenging and uncertain times.

Our Work with Purpose speakers are shining examples of dedication, humility, aptitude, empathy, tutelage, collaboration and leadership.

It’s been a privilege working with and listening to these public servants, academics, and representatives from business and not-for-profit sectors speak so passionately and intelligently about their areas of expertise, sharing how they and their colleagues are working tirelessly to make Australia, and the world, a much better place.

We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we have enjoyed bringing the Work with Purpose podcast series to you since its inception a year ago.
