What is an Unconvention
Unconvention = Unconventional Ideas and Unconventional Learning Methodologies to Revitalise Board Governance
An Unconvention is a cross-sector, intergenerational forum for Board and Community Leaders to meet, exchange information, discuss, network and collaborate on topical issues relating to Board governance, leadership and age diversity on Boards. Unconventions are typically half day workshops.
Productive, energetic and challenging, the agenda may include fishbowl activity, facilitated conversations, ignite presentations, speaker debates, panel discussions and networking opportunities. Unconventions also utilise the wisdom of keynote speakers, giving attendees the opportunity to hear from some of WA’s most influential community, leadership and governance experts who share their personal insights into new and emerging themes within the aged care, government, education and community sector. Previous keynote speakers include Honourable Helen Morton, Minister for Mental Health; Disability Services; Child Protection, Lyn Beazley, (then) Chief Scientist of WA, George Jones, Retired Sundance Resources Chairman, Liz Ritchie, State Director CEDA and Professor Paul Flatau, Director of the UWA Business School Centre for Social Impact.
A speciality of the The Unconvention series (usually 2 Unconventions a year) is to bring Young Leaders into contact with established leaders and create change, facility and opportunities in the aged care and community sector for their inclusion in governance and senior leadership.
Unconventions are open to all academic, business, government and community leaders as well as Young Leaders with an interest in Community governance and leadership. Alicia Curtis, leadership development trainer and speaker, is the Unconventions Facilitator.
