Leaders Panel - 'Trump, Brexit and the EU - Whither Australia?'
17th May 2017
Barely 12 months ago, few respectable commentators would have predicted that Britons would vote in favour of Brexit, that Donald Trump would be elected President of the United States or that several European nations would be facing the possibility of electing far right leaders in 2017. In Australia, there is constant commentary on the rising prominence of populism both globally and in Australia, with a focus on social and economic policies that are reminiscent of attitudes of past decades. Trump's tweets, Theresa May's Brexit machinations and Marie Le Pen's populist policies all raise significant questions as to the implications of these global events on Australia - its politics, and social and economic direction.
The Honourable Steve Bracks AC, former Premier of Victoria and now a leading company director and international consultant, Don Argus AC - Chairman of Bank of America Merrill Lynch Australia Advisory Board and Member of the Bank of America Global Advisory Council, and Professor Graeme Samuel AC, former Chairman of the ACCC and now a Professorial Fellow in the Monash Business School with past and current extensive involvement in Australian economic and social reform, will discuss these issues in a Leadership Panel.
What is a Leaders Panel?
Our Leaders Panels showcase Monash Business School's thought leadership as a source of inspiration for new thinking, as the seed for creating communities of knowledge, and as a point of reference for national debates. The Leaders Panels bring together prominent members of our Business Advisory Board, as well as guest speakers to focus on issues of national importance which merit public discussion and debate. A typical Leaders Panel will include a discussion between three to four contributors to stimulate and shape debate, followed by a Q&A.
