Event Description

The APEX 2019 Leadership Symposium will offer a unique opportunity to learn and network with over 800 executives from across the federal public service, and to hear from experts and leaders on a variety of topics that are top of mind for every public service executive. Building on last year’s success and great feedback by participants, APEX has developed a two-day program that will meet the needs of executives.We will present world-class keynote speakers and offer panel discussions.


The Symposium is a unique opportunity to hear thought leaders on leadership, public policy issues, current hot topics, priorities of government, workplace trends, etc. The conference is now designated as training for executives and is a great learning environment.
