SPEAKERS

We're pleased to welcome Ian Dixon as conference MC & keynote speaker

A little bit about Ian...
is an internationally recognised thought leader in the cross-sector partnering space, Ian’s work lives at the crux of transformational change. Obsessed with tackling high-impact partnering initiatives, he’s built an inimitable reputation throughout the Asia-Pacific region as the strategic advisor, executive mentor and independent mediator of choice for many corporate, government and NFP organisations.Since 1999, Ian’s programs have built the partnering capability of countless individuals, organisations and sectors, empowering a new breed of collaborative leader, fit for the future of work. Ian’s uncanny ability to ‘bridge the divide’ between business, government, education and community has earned him strong ties with international organisations such as The Partnering Initiative and the Partnership Brokers Association, both based in the UK. But it’s his work at home, particularly with indigenous communities throughout Australia that defines his legacy.Serving as the Independent Chair of the Native Title Resolution process in South Australia from 2000 to 2009 and recently as an Independent Director of Ngaanyatjarra Council and Ngaanyatjarra Health Service in Central Western Australia, Ian’s passion for learning from and preserving our Indigenous culture sets him apart as a champion for real, lasting and meaningful change.
