Summary: 2011 SESSION DATES
FEBRUARY 13 TO 25, 2011
SEPTEMBER 25 TO OCTOBER 7, 2011
New pressures regarding accountability, partnerships and highly-technical challenges
in healthcare, energy, security, and environment are radically reshaping the public
service challenge at all levels of government. Most local issues now have an international
aspect, and most international policy choices also relate to local, street-level reality
in many ways.
The challenge for today's public servant is one requiring judgment, perspective,
knowledge networks, dynamic linkages and the capacity to deliver or engage with
`drill down' technical acuity.
Learning and questioning together with colleagues from other regions and levels, with
diverse skill sets and experiences, in an idea- and analysis-rich environment, is the
essence of the Queen's Public Executive Program content and design. Our alumni
benefit from new ideas, fresh networks and compelling insights about their professional
and career challenges.
