All our professional development opportunities conducted under the Chatham House Rule to encourage robust and peer learning, are also a great opportunity for professionals to connect and share their experiences and work challenges. Our professional development programs include:
Our webinars usually feature a guest speaker/speakers with opportunities for questions and discussions and are developed to provide practical ‘how-to-do’ case studies and learnings.
These programs typically include Guest Faculty and often feature case studies to illustrate best practice or highlight learnings that can be taken back to the workplace for application or discussion. Our workshop program straddles all corporate public affairs functions and caters for all levels of the profession.
Our roundtable events held in Australia and Asia are for the most senior corporate public affairs practitioners. These one-day roundtables analyse and discuss the most recent developments and trends in function management and development.
The Centre Institute is held annually in Australia at Melbourne Business School and in Asia at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Business School. More than 2000 professionals over the years are graduates from the Residential Institute program. The Institute program features an international Faculty and sessions led by industry professionals and leaders from leading global corporations.
Special dialogues are held with invited practitioners around an industry or profession-wide issue, and include, for instance, Asia Pacific trade policy, reputation indexes and government inquiries into issues such as corporate social responsibility.
