The College looks forward to welcoming Australian of the Year Lieutenant General David Morrison AO as the guest of honour at our forthcoming Leadership Dinner.

"Few would expect a tough-as-nails Chief of Army to be recognised internationally for his commitment to gender equality, diversity and inclusion. But when former Lieutenant-General David Morrison ordered misbehaving troops to ‘get out’ if they couldn’t accept women as equals, his video went viral and he started a cultural shift that has changed Australia’s armed forces forever." - www.australianoftheyear.org.au

The College looks forward to welcoming former Treasurer the Hon. Peter Costello at our forthcoming 'In Conversation' event.

Peter Costello AC, an Australian former politician and lawyer who served as the Treasurer in the Australian Howard Government from 1996 to 2007, he remains the longest-serving Treasurer in Australia's history.

Current Chairman of Nine Entertainment Co., Chairman of the Australian Government Future Fund and managing partner of BKK Partners, Peter Costello also writes a regular column for Fairfax newspapers.

Jenny Tran and Richard Liu, two of our past tutors, have been recognised for Outstanding Achievement in innovation in volunteering, with their Community Health Advancement and Student Engagement (CHASE) program. The College would like to congratulate them on the award, as well as join in thanking them for their hard work and contribution to the wider community.
