Collaborating for Success – Improving performance in emergency management


Collaborating and improving performance is essential for success in emergency management. Innovating in the face of disruptions and developing our people to successfully manage organisations of the future is a key challenge. Understanding what our people need in order to deliver what communities expect is no simple task. Working together is how we will deliver the best results. AFAC17 will focus on how we can work together to improve our performance, what leading the way looks like and who will benefit from our collective effort.
