Strategies Leaders Can Use to Build Resilience in Themselves and Their Teams

Dr André Taylor, Leadership Specialist


In this presentation, leadership coach Dr André Taylor will share some techniques that developing leaders use to build resilience in themselves, their teams and organisations. A theme of this presentation will be the importance of adopting an experimental mindset as a leader.

Ruth Morgan


The development of urban water supplies and sanitation over the past century or so has brought incredible benefits to our lives, while technology and infrastructure allows us to consume that water in the blink of an eye. Thinking more carefully about where our water comes from — and at what cost — is vital to making sense of living in Australian cities now and in the future.
