Government: The Mega Trends Emerging from COVID-19

COVID-19 has given rise to some of the greatest challenges our nation has faced outside of wartime. It has forced a rapid transformation of business and government, amidst shifting consumer and citizen needs and expectations. Meanwhile, Australian governments have grappled with a rapid shift in their duties, activating never-before used powers, accelerating the shift toward digital healthcare and injecting unprecedented levels of stimulus into the economy. The curve has flattened, and now governments face a long road steering the nation’s economy, communities and wellbeing toward a new normal.

The world as we know it will change more in the next six months than was likely in the next six years. What does this mean for government communications?

Please join WPP’s Government & Public Sector Practice’s Global Director of Capability, Sean Larkins, Chairman, Pat Duffy and Executive Director, Michael Harris and special guest Trish Johnston, Assistant Secretary, Communications Advice Branch in the Department of Finance who will explore the considerations for government communicators as the New Normal takes shape.
