Over the course of September and October, the Hunter JO has been invited to participate and engage in a range of workshops, webinars and regional forums in line with our strategic priorities of advocacy and collaboration. Through connecting with different networks and partners across the region and beyond, we can deliver greater collaborative outcomes for the Hunter.
Our CEO Joe James will be speaking at the Executive Insights Seminar on Regional Liveability on 4 November. This webinar will focus on ‘Future Proofing the Regions’ in the areas of sustainability and success, talent retention, competitive destinations and collaboration. Other speakers will address:
- Key drivers of regional liveability and attraction
- Regional evolution – managing change
- Catalytic change and the role of infrastructure investment
- The need to think multi-regionally
