Brisbane Cove Conference and Knowing yourself and others as a leader: Theme 1 closure

By The Cove July 26, 2021


The first theme of 2021 Knowing yourself and others as a leader has now concluded. The Cove team thanks all those who either contributed articles, or organised or participated in the Brisbane Cove Conference held 27-30 Apr 21. You will find all the information related to the conference and theme here.

As a reminder, The Cove are engaging in specific themes in a condensed period of time as this will allow for a breadth and depth of perspectives on a single topic to be presented at once. Ultimately, this may lead to better connection and appreciation of shared ideas and space for dialogue on a single theme.

On this page you will find:

  1. Brisbane Cove Conference program (here), and guest lecturer’s biographies, PowerPoint presentations and video recordings in the table below. (Please note: videos can only be viewed off the DPN due to firewall restrictions. You can view this content on your mobile or personal devices ).
