Lessons Management Webinar Series

Learning lessons from recent Australian bushfire seasons


11.00am-12.00pm AEST, 28 July 2020



The Lessons Management Webinar Series will continue to build upon the current expertise and understanding from across the practice to ensure we don’t just identify our lessons, but we actively engage with them to develop learnings and improve policy and practice.


Learning lessons from recent Australian bushfire seasons

After the overwhelming success of the 2019 Lessons Management Forum, AFAC and AIDR are excited to announce a free Lessons Management webinar series in 2020.

Our first webinar brings together Australia's two Inspectors-General of Emergency Management to share their experiences on reviewing the most recent bushfire events and comparing them with previous reviews, including challenges experienced with the lessons process.

Tune in to hear from our experienced speakers followed by an interactive Q&A session.


Guest Speakers:

Tony was appointed Victoria’s first Inspector-General for Emergency Management in July 2014.
