New role as Executive Director of the John Curtin Research Centre

Monday, February 13th, 2017

I’m delighted to have recently taken up the role as the inaugural Executive Director of a new social democratic thinktank, the John Curtin Research Centre. We kicked off our work with the official launch of the centre on Australia Day Eve with special guest speaker, the Hon. Bill Shorten, Leader of the federal Labor Opposition. Our chairman is the distinguished Labor activist, medical doctor and businessman Dr Henry Pinksier. We have a busy few months of activity ahead of us.
