SPS Leadership Seminar 2019 – Lessons from the road less travelled...

Thu 17th Oct, 2019 from 6:15PM (6:45PM start) - 8:30PM

Please join us at our annual SPS Leadership Seminar, to hear Brigadier Rupert Hoskin share about the lessons learnt throughout his career/life that have shaped him into the leader he is today.

Rupert has taken lots of opportunities to diverge from the normal path of an Army officer and is looking forward to sharing some candid perspectives of what he has learned about life and leadership, through both positive and negative experiences.

Brigadier Rupert Hoskin, AM is the Commandant of the Royal Military College (Australia) and the Director of Army Leadership. He has the lead responsibility for the training and development of leaders inside the Australian Army. We are also fortunate enough to have him as one of the Ambassadors of the SPS Leaders Alliance.

Rupert entered the Australian Defence Force Academy in 1988, and subsequently graduated from the Royal Military College Duntroon to the Royal Australian Engineers. He has had a diverse career, incorporating regimental and operational military service with engineering, project management, representational and diplomatic roles, as well as working in private industry.

Rupert has undertaken a range of professional engineering and project management appointments, both in uniform and with industry. In 1991 he worked for Taylor Woodrow in the UK as a site engineer. In 1995 he was seconded to work for John Holland Construction on oil and gas facilities on the North-West Shelf, and during a sabbatical in 1998 he worked on the Jubilee Line Extension Project in London. From 2006 – 2008 he was the Project Director for the $630m Hardened and Networked Army Facilities Project, delivering new infrastructure for the 7 RAR Battlegroup and RAAF Base Edinburgh, which was subsequently awarded major prizes by the Master Builders Association of Australia and the Australian Institute of Project Management.

Rupert has a Bachelor of Maritime Engineering with Honours from UNSW/ADFA, a Masters of Defence Studies from the Canadian Forces Command and Staff College, and a Master of Business Administration from Latrobe University. He is a Chartered Professional Engineer, and a Fellow and Engineering Executive of Engineers Australia.

Rupert speaks French fluently and has a Higher Diploma of French from the French Ministry of State Education. He is a 2016 graduate of the Defence Strategic Studies Course, for which he was awarded the Chief of Defence Force/Secretary for Defence Prize for leadership and strategy. In 2017, he was made a Member of the Order of Australia (Military Division) for his contribution to Defence international relations. He was made an Officer in the US Legion of Merit, and awarded an Australian Commendation for Distinguished Service, for his work in the campaign against Islamic State (ISIS). Brigadier Hoskin was also awarded a Knight of the French National Order of Merit for his contribution to Australia/France relations.

This seminar continues to be an annual event for SPS clients, colleagues and friends, as well as being open to the SPS Leaders Alliance member organisations and participants.

We look forward to having many of you join us for a night of learning and networking! Whilst attendance at this seminar is free of charge, please register by Tue 15th Oct for catering purposes. Numbers are limited and tickets will be available on a first in basis.
