Lunch with a Leader – Anthony Boxshall – Webinar


Anthony Boxshall

Principal and Founder, Science into Action

In Conversation with the PCT Network

When: Tuesday 16 August 2022, 12.00-1.30pm AEST

Where: Zoom

A marine ecologist by trade, Anthony Boxshall is adept in leading and governing within scientific and technically complex challenges, especially those involving multiple stakeholders.

With more than 20 years’ experience in leadership, Anthony has deep regulatory experience as a former head of the Science part of EPA Victoria, is a current Melbourne Enterprise Fellow (Integrative Environmental Research), the inaugural Chair of the Victorian Marine & Coastal Council, Parks Victoria Board member, valedictory Chair of the Victorian Coastal Council, and Principal & Founder of Science into Action – his own science impact company.

Anthony knows how critical a science-based strategy is for an organisation in a complex organisational, stakeholder, emergency, media and political environment. In the complex situations in which we all must make our decisions, Anthony suggests people embrace that complexity, plot pathways to impact, adaptively evaluate, and actively co-design with critical stakeholders.

It has been commonly said that Anthony speaks Science, Government and English.

In this PCT conversation, Anthony will join us to reflect on leadership, people and technical complexity.  This is a FREE EVENT for PCT Fellows and Friends.
