Inspiring Australians Network – Sundowner
Auspire launched the Inspiring Australians Network with a Sundowner to acknowledge the outstanding support and commitment of WA Australian of the Year Alumni and Auspire Ambassadors. The Inspiring Australians Network is an outstanding group of incredible individuals whose community contribution has helped shape the community of WA and Australia. They are leaders in their fields, innovators, entrepreneurs, community champions and outstanding role models.
It was an informal but important opportunity to acknowledge this small group of inspirational community leaders and at the same time an occasion to recognise the long-time support of Qantas for the Australian of the Year Awards program with the inclusion of one of Australia’s most respected corporate leaders, Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce as guest speaker.
Mr Joyce spoke about the role Qantas plays in our nation’s and state’s social, cultural and economic progress and about the 12-month anniversary of the launch of Qantas’ Perth to London direct flight. He also responded to guests’ questions and generously made time to mingle with guests.
The event was held at the prestigious and beautiful heritage listed Constitutional Centre in West Perth in the heart of the WA Parliament precinct. Guests included Prof Fiona Wood AC and current Australian of the Year Dr Craig Challen SC OAM, Auspire Board members, Australian of the Year Alumni and Auspire Ambassadors. It’s planned to be the first of many similar events, we’re looking forward to the next one.
