15 minutes in Canberra

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work in foreign policy? Canberra is buzzing with seasoned foreign affairs and strategic policy experts, but for newcomers and mid-tier professionals, the ‘Canberra bubble’ can be tricky to navigate.

Join host Hayley Channer on the ground as she speaks with colleagues from government, academia, and the private sector, to bring you their unique policy insights and career advice in a neat 15 minutes.  

Based in Canberra, Australia, Hayley Channer is a Senior Policy Fellow at the Perth USAsia Centre.

Learning to embrace career failures and disappointments

In this very special, extended episode of 15 Minutes in Canberra, hear from podcast host, Hayley Channer, plus two previous guests – Raoul Heinrichs and Lisa Sharland, as they talk intimately about personal career failures and professional disappointments.

We can learn so much from our failures, yet, established professionals are seldom asked about when things went wrong and how they bounced back.

This episode will make you feel better about every time you’ve ever put yourself out there professionally and fallen flat on your face. It will also give you candid insights into the dark arts of government selection criteria, what to expect from bulk recruitment rounds, and the importance of knowing your personal and professional limitations so you can be at your best at work.
