Event Details

Introducing the Great Leaders Masterclass, a series of cocktail events featuring six prominent leaders from a diverse range of sectors, to speak about an individual who has inspired them as a leader. It could be a modern or historical figure; someone with significant public profile, or someone lesser known.

Run every second month from February to December 2016, the Great Leaders Masterclass will be an engaging and thought-provoking exploration of leadership. Each class will be wholly dedicated to one leader speaking about the leader of their choice, with an opportunity for audience discussion.

The Great Leaders Masterclass will provide unique insights into the characteristics of great leadership.

The first Great Leaders Masterclass will be presented by The Hon. John Brumby on February 18 at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.

The Hon John Brumby, former Premier of Victoria (2007 – 2010), has immense experience in public life, serving for more than 10 years as Treasurer and then Premier of Victoria, six years as Leader of the Victorian Opposition and seven years as Federal MHR for Bendigo during the Hawke Government.Since retiring from politics, Mr Brumby has accepted a number of board positions. He is Chairman of the Motor Trades Association of Australia (MTAA) Superannuation Fund, Deputy Chair of Industry Super Australia, an Independent Director of Huawei Technologies (Australia) Pty Limited and a Director of Citywide Solutions Pty Ltd.Mr Brumby retains a strong interest in public policy as a Professorial Fellow at both The University of Melbourne and Monash University, and between January 2013 and June 2014 he was Chairman of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Reform Council.

Mr Brumby is also actively involved in a number of not-for profit organisations. He is Chairman of Trustees of the Joe Welch Bursary Trust, a Board Member of the Fred Hollows Foundation, a member of the Rhodes Scholarship Selection Committee and an Australia Day Ambassador.
