Controlling the Un-Controllable in a Perma-Crisis

Oct 23, 2023, 6:00 am - 8:30 pm


Could losing control be a good thing? As we grapple with disasters of increasing intensity and frequency it’s time to question our persistent need for control in emergency management.

This is a rare coming together of three passionate, funny and deeply committed disaster folks Dan Neely, Dr Kate Brady and Elizabeth McNaughton. With a collective 60 years of experience in disasters they look to the future with thought provoking ideas from New Zealand and Australia to shape the future of recovery and resilience. If you work in disaster recovery and community resilience, or are interested in how we tackle this big challenge, this a one time event you don’t want to miss.

Dan, Kate and Elizabeth will provoke you to rethink what’s really within your sphere of control and to explore the freedom and power that lies outside the limits of our current systems. They will immerse you in a provocative, humorous and practical experience that explores alternative thinking to the status quo.
