What are the major global trends and transitions that lie just around the corner, and how will they affect Australian cities, states and the nation as a whole? The Hon. John Brumby AO will draw on 30 years of experience in public life—from Federal Member for Bendigo to Premier of Victoria—and offer insights from a diverse post-politics career in order to address these questions.
About the Speaker
The Hon. John Brumby AO began his career as a teacher at Eaglehawk High School in Bendigo. He then embarked on what would become a highly distinguished career in public service when in 1983, he was elected to the Australian House of Representatives for the seat of Bendigo, a seat he held until 1990.
He then spent more than ten years in the Victoria Legislative Assembly as Treasurer, six years as Leader of the Victorian Opposition, and was Premier of Victoria from 2007 to 2010. Mr. Brumby has held the interests of Victoria and its people close to his heart for more than four decades – first as a teacher, then politician and now statesman.
Mr Brumby’s connection with La Trobe University is firmly rooted in his connection with the Bendigo community and the University’s Bendigo Campus. He is currently Chair of the La Trobe affiliated Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute, which is one of the University’s key research partnerships.
Mr Brumby was awarded an Order of Australia in 2017 for distinguished service to the Parliament of Victoria, to economic management and medical biotechnology innovation, to improved rural and regional infrastructure, and to the community.
