Annual Conferences


The Emergency Services Foundation has for many years hosted a popular annual conference for people working to deliver Victoria’s emergency management arrangements. Organised by a multi-agency committee with assistance from High Profile Events, the 2018 conference held on 10 and 11 July at the Pullman Hotel was themed Strategy to Action.  Keynote speakers included The Hon Julia Gillard, Chair beyondblue who spoke about research into mental health in Australia’s emergency services  (can we link to her presentation please – sitting in the news section) and Major Matina Jewell (retired), one of the most highly decorated women in Australia’s military history, who recounted stories of authentic leadership in the face of adversity.

Details of the 2019 Emergency Management Conference will be posted as they become available.
