On Friday 5 September 2014 the School hosted a forum addressing what Australia is seeking to achieve in its G20 host year and how the outcomes of the G20 Summit will impact Australian policy and regulation, and therefore our business and community sectors.

Guest speakers included Australia’s G20 Sherpa, Dr Heather Smith; Senior Adviser at UBS and B20 Sherpa for Australia, Robert Milliner; Chair of the C20 and Chief Executive of World Vision Australia, Tim Costello plus Josh Frydenberg, Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister. The esteemed panel explored the likely domestic impacts of this meeting of world leaders.

David Speers, Political Editor of Sky News Australia, served as moderator and facilitated a lively and informative discussion.

This event was sponsored by our G20 partners, CPA Australia.
