The 2016 Singapore Civil Service Program participants enjoyed a very engaging and informative program in late May. The one week program focussed on government communications and covered a suite of topics including leadership, stakeholder engagement, government-media relations, digital transformation and indigenous issues.
As part of the program, the group were given a tour of the Parliament House press gallery by Michelle Grattan, where they were treated to an impromptu briefing by fellow veteran political commentator, Paul Bongiorno.
The Singapore Civil Service College Program is a unique collaboration between ANZSOG, the Singapore Civil Service College (CSC) and Singapore’s Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI). The inaugural program was delivered in Canberra in April 2013. Each year’s program is attended by approximately 20 senior Singaporean civil servants working within government communications.
