VALA Events 2013: Evening with Sue Roberts

VALA Guest Speaker Event and AGM

Leading in an uncertain world: developing library vision, strategy and the place of technology

Leadership, at all levels, is critical to the ongoing success and future of libraries, whatever the sector, purpose or size. The context of constant change, ambiguity, and the speed of developments, especially in new technologies, can make the challenge of setting vision and strategy appear even more daunting. This talk explores these issues using the example of the State Library of Victoria and also draws insights from other organisations. Sue will also discuss the place of personal leadership within this context.

Speaker: Sue Roberts, CEO and State Librarian, State Library of Victoria

Sue Roberts is CEO and State Librarian of Australia’s oldest and busiest State Library – the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne. Prior to moving to Melbourne in April 2012, Sue worked in strategic library leadership and management roles in the tertiary sector in the UK and New Zealand. Throughout her career Sue has focused on the transformation of library and information services to meet the changing landscape and on the engagement of stakeholders and partners to establish and achieve shared goals. Sue is also a published author and has undertaken a range of professional leadership roles at local, national and international levels.


This talk will follow the business of the Annual General Meeting, as previously advised to VALA members.
