“A Village Manager is many things to everyone BUT can be everything to someone.”


VILLAGE SUMMIT 2022 brings together a master list of speakers from a range of fields – including legal experts, marketing professionals, and industry veterans – to provide a day packed with valuable learning opportunities and inspire delegates for personal and business growth in 2023.

Purpose is an organisation’s reason for existing beyond just the financial, and a Village Manager epitomises this every day.

With a clear purpose of your own, you’ll improve engagement with colleagues and residents, achieve business goals faster, and enjoy a sense of direction in what you are doing, and in your career.
