Quotes from the Minister’s speech
Public sector leadership is essential to transformation, to meeting demand pressures, to innovation, to the way in which we rise up collectively to the challenges our citizens confront each and every day and to the expectations they hold of us.

We need to dive into the public sector, to find talent, to cherish it, to nurture it, and to make sure that we have the analytics to understand what our skill mix is at the moment, and to actually identify what our skill deficiencies may be.
