2017 IPAA National Fellow
Congratulations to Daniel Butler, on being named South Australia’s recipient of the 2017 IPAA National Fellow award, presented by Professor Peter Shergold AC, IPAA’s National President, at the 2017 IPAA National Awards Ceremony in Canberra. National Fellowship is the highest award that IPAA offers and in the last thirty years the Institute has awarded just over 200 Fellowships.
Dan has made a significant contribution to the development of the public sector through his passion for innovation and reform and the development of an ethical and adaptive public sector focused on the common good. He is a highly regarded professional public servant of the highest integrity who has made a significant contribution to the best practice of public administration. His core expertise is in integrated organisational performance, particularly in public institutions. It is also testimony to Dan’s outstanding contribution to the support of IPAA SA, providing much valued input on Divisional Council, Subcommittees and support at events for the benefit of the South Australian Public Sector.
Dan has been a dedicated Professional Member of the institute for over 7 years, was a member of the Divisional Council for 5 years and is now the chair of the Strategic Advisory Committee. Due to his vast experience in public sector reform, Dan curated the IPAA 2016 National Conference, which was held on 20 + 21 October 2016. He was responsible for the structure and content of the conference, and ensured that potential delegates were provided with a compelling option for professional and personal development. Now, as Principal Consultant with the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, Dan is currently working on developing a Public Sector Innovation Laboratory in partnership with a range of organisations.
From the team at IPAA SA, we wish to thank you for your commitment and support to the purpose of our organisation and look forward to continuing to see you inspire the South Australian public sector.
