I am very pleased to join this Living Cities Workshop here at Parliament House.
I congratulate the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects for organizing this event – it is an important opportunity to exchange ideas about the future of our cities.
It is a pleasure to be with you at this important forum concerning healthy cities.
I would like to particularly thank the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria for hosting this summit.
I am very pleased to join you for this important conference to discuss local roads and transport issues.
Under the dynamic leadership of Troy Pickard, the Australian Local Government Association is very much a thought leader in engaging with important public policy questions about how best we deliver road transport services to Australians – and the role of all three levels of government in doing that.
I am very pleased to join this important forum convened by the Transport Reform Network, on the question of ‘road pricing reform.’ Ten years ago I think it would have been very difficult to get a group of people together to speak about road pricing – other than to dismiss it with the observation that Australians would strongly resist the idea of having to pay for something that many perceive that they get for free.
Good morning, it’s a great pleasure to be here to speak at the Australian Government Libraries Information Network Conference: “Change, challenges and opportunities”.
I am very pleased to be here at the launch of this important report into Competition in the Financial Sector.
It is a pleasure to join you at this Cyber Security Innovation Summit organised by Intel Security. We rely more and more on the internet in every aspect of modern life – and that is true for individuals, for businesses, for governments and for organisations of all kinds.
I am very pleased to speak to the Trans Tasman Business Circle – a particularly good forum in which to speak about policy settings to stimulate innovation and the digital economy.
I first encountered the Isolated Children’s Parents’ Association nearly twenty years ago, as a young ministerial adviser working for then Communications Minister Richard Alston.
I am pleased to be here at this important conference for the Australian online retail sector.
What your sector does is very important - seizing on the potential of digital platforms to deliver better, faster, more tailored, more responsive and more imaginative shopping experiences for your customers.
