Tax Institute’s Queensland Tax Forum

On 27 August, I gave a speech to the Tax Institute’s Queensland Tax Forum in Brisbane to discuss the Government’s tax agenda. As part of the speech, I emphasised why Australia’s tax system needs reform. Notably, Australia has more than 14,000 pages of tax law with annual tax compliance costs estimated at $40 billion. This affects our international competitiveness and can discourage individuals from starting or expanding their own business.  I highlighted some of the tax reform initiatives the Government is pursuing including reducing the tax rate for small businesses and undertaking a comprehensive review of the tax system through the Tax White Paper process.

Hockey in Hawthorn

It was great to join Michael Norbury, President of the TEM Hockey Club on 23 August at the club's home ground in Auburn Road, Hawthorn East to watch some of the weekend's great hockey games.  I am pictured here with Tony Dudley, Joe Hough, Michael Norbury and state member for Hawthorn, John Pesutto.

On 21 August, I delivered a speech titled, ‘The Future of Super’, to The Tax Institute’s National Superannuation Conference in Sydney.

On Wednesday 19 August, I had the pleasure of welcoming our future female leaders to my office at Parliament House.

ACCI Inaugural Business Leaders' Summit

On 17 August, I joined a panel discussion at the inaugural Business Leaders' Summit hosted by the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) in Canberra. Before taking questions from the audience, the panel discussed options for achieving sustainable economic growth and the domestic and international challenges facing  Australia. I was joined on the panel by Kate Carnell AO, CEO of ACCI, Kevin McCann AM, Chairman of the Macquarie Group, and Dr Sally Auld, Managing Director and Head of Fixed Income & FX Strategy at JP Morgan. I am pictured below speaking on the panel.

Later in the day, I addressed the Summit's Reception at Parliament House, Canberra, officially representing the Prime Minister, the Hon Tony Abbott MP. Following the Leader of the Opposition and Maile Carnegie, Managing Director of Google Australia and New Zealand, I spoke on the Government's reform priorities, the need for bipartisan commitment to important reforms to strengthen our economy and the strong contribution ACCI makes to public debate in Australia. I am pictured below addressing the reception.

Surrey Hills Men's Probus Club

On 7 August 2015, I was delighted to speak to 100 members of the Men’s Probus Club of Surrey Hills. The club offers valuable opportunities for active retirees and semi-retirees living in the area to socialise, advance healthy living, and further shared intellectual and cultural interests. I was pleased to speak to club members about the economy, Australian foreign policy, and national security.

U3A Hawthorn

On 5 August 2015, I enjoyed discussing the Australian economy and national security with members of the University of the Third Age Hawthorn. I spoke about the state of the global economy and the potential impact it may have on the Australian economy, as well as the rich economic prospects and opportunities available to us within our region. The forum was a great opportunity to hear from U3A members and answer questions across a range of issues including Australia’s energy future, fiscal policy and national security. U3A in Hawthorn is celebrating its 30th year in operation, providing courses and lectures to eager retirees, and is always seeking more volunteers. I am pictured here at the lectern.

On Friday 31 July I was delighted to address 120 local business and community figures at the Boroondara Business Breakfast held at the Hawthorn Arts Centre.

The breakfast was hosted by the City of Boroondara and Mayor Coral Ross.

European Australian Business Council (EABC) Boardroom Lunch
