27 July: FCM Breakfast with Colin Barnett from Bible Society Australia former Premier of WA (2008-2017)
July 27, 2019 @ 7:50 am - 10:30 am$22
Guest speaker: Colin Barnett.
‘The Human Side of Politics!’
Well known to all of us, Colin Barnett was Premier of Western Australia from 2008 to 2017 at which time Labor won a crushing victory over the Liberal Party which brought to an end Colin’s political life after a career of over 27 years.
Colin’s address will comprise some non-partisan reflections on the human side of politics – the stresses and almost overwhelming demands of public service as a politician.
Colin graduated with an Honours degree in economics from UWA and later earned a Master’s degree in the same discipline. After some years of experience in a variety of Government and academic roles, Colin was elected as the Liberal member for Cottesloe in 1990 and soon after became a Minister in the Richard Court Government. After a period in Opposition, the Liberals won government in 2008 and Colin became Premier.
Topic: “The Human Side of Politics!”
We are grateful to Colin for being willing to share with us some of his personal experiences.
