  • I am a federal public servant; however the opinions expressed are my own and may not reflect the views of the Public Service of Canada, its Departments and/or Agencies, or their employees. Like all of my presentations, I have put this one together in spirit of the Clerk of the Privy Council’s call to get involved in Public Service renewal, and my own struggles to figure out what the hell that actually means. It took me a while to put together because, strictly speaking, it doesn’t form any part of my actual work duties.
