Change is a norm for the federal sector and has been for some time.  New administrations, agency leadership, and policy bring about a multitude of changes that impact programs underway and new programs to be implemented.  From the perspective of an executive sponsor, change leader, change manager, or change champion, join us to explore what it takes to adapt to a dynamic work environment to successfully lead change.  If you work in the federal government or interested in learning how change management is implemented in the public sector, learn from seasoned change practitioners on how to keep the momentum for your change initiative at this enlightening event! 

Event keynote speaker and panelists will discuss: 

  • What best practices are available that provide credibility to drive transformational change in the federal government as a key influencer

  • How one establishes his or her “influencer persona” and become a trusted advisor to those undertaking new leadership roles within an agency

  • How one undertakes change efforts for policy and programs that transition, transform or adapt under new agency leadership.
