We’re delighted by the further appointments of our distinguished Alumni, Jim Betts and Natalie James, as new secretaries of Australian Public Service Departments. Commencing their new appointments on 11 July, Jim and Natalie are Cranlana Executive Colloquium Alumni from 2009 and 2018, respectively.

Please join us in congratulating Jim, on his appointment as Secretary of the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts, and Natalie, on her appointment as Secretary of the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations. We know that Jim and Natalie will lead with the courage and wisdom they have built as Cranlana Alumni, and the extensive experience they have accumulated during their careers in public service to the people of Australia.

In the official media release, the Prime Minister congratulated Jim and Natalie on their appointments, stating that they “will bring to the Federal level a deep understanding of the priority challenges facing Governments in this space.”

Cranlana Centre for Ethical Leadership’s programs include the 2 day Executive Ethics, 6 day Executive Colloquium and year-long Vincent Fairfax Fellowship. We also deliver online and tailored corporate programs. Find the right program for you. They are all held under the Chatham House Rule to encourage genuine and open debate, and allow participants to candidly discuss sometimes sensitive issues in private while allowing the topic and nature of the debate to be made public, and contribute to a broader conversation. The alumni program offers ongoing leadership development support and a lifelong connection with Cranlana.
