On Thursday, 1 November 2018, we celebrated our annual Ambassador Dinner. Dedicated to honouring our network of Global Ambassadors, this year’s gala dinner, hosted by International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), saw over 300 attendees enjoy a spectacular evening. We were joined on the night by The Hon. Minister Adam Marshall MP, NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events on behalf of the NSW Premier and Patron of the Ambassador Program, The Hon. Gladys Berejiklian MP.
We were honoured to have this year's Australia Oration presented by Gail Kelly, former CEO of Westpac Group. Speaking to the theme of ‘Leadership for Changing Times’, Ms. Kelly shared her views on how generosity of spirit is a style that all leaders should exhibit in today's world. This was followed by an in-depth conversation with former Telstra CEO and Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) Chair, David Thodey AO.
BESydney would like to thank our sponsors for the evening, Venue Partner – ICC Sydney, and Event Partner – First State Super, for their ongoing support of BESydney and our Global Ambassador network.
