DANA’s annual conference will take place in the heart of Sydney’s CBD at the Swissotel in August 2019.
‘The Power of Connection’ is the event theme, selected to remind us that in the increasingly impersonal digital age, the power to lead and make change is still derived from the relationships that we build.
