Dr Andy Asquith is a Yorkshire native coming to Sydney via Auckland, New Zealand, to share his expertise on public sector organisations. Dr Asquith’s research has recently focussed on New Zealand local governance and politics, specifically in the changing leadership roles of both local government mayors and chief executives in New Zealand and the debate surrounding the future role of local government. In 2011, Dr Asquith was appointed as Visiting Professor of Public Management in Russia’s Moscow Higher School of Economics and at the Kazan Federal University. He is currently Senior Lecturer at the School of Management, University of New Zealand.

  • How can citizens be part of shaping their community's future?
  • What does a modern Local Government Councillor look like?
  • Who really cares about Local Government?
  • What is the status of local government reform in NSW and elsewhere?
  • Where does Local Government sit on the Federal Government's agenda?
