Everyone has an opinion on what is good management and what’s not. Tonight, we are looking at the factors that make good management practice. There will be a presentation followed by a workshop, so you can share experience and learn from others.
Kathryn Harries, tonight’s presenter, is conducting research into management practices that empower remote field teams working in humanitarian response and international development, with the view to developing a tool to assist leaders and managers across the sector.
Participating in this event will enable you to:
- Explore your own and others experience of good and bad management practices and which might translate to international development
- See your own work in a different light
- Expand your network and build deeper links with your peers
Our facilitator, Kathryn Harries, has worked in international aid and development for over 20 years in countries including India, Somalia, and across the Pacific. Her roles have included Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Cluster Coordinator in Somalia, which was identified as global good practice for knowledge management and information sharing, and Knowledge and Learning Manager for the DFAT-funded Civil Society WASH Fund. She is fascinated by management practice to empower highly skilled field teams.
