The Group of Eight (Go8) welcomes the opportunity to convey its views to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade on the proposed Indonesia-Australia Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (IA-CEPA). Please note that this submission represents the views of the Go8 network; member universities may also make their own, more detailed submissions.
How to nurture Nobel Laureates? What a question to consider in just seven minutes!
The Go8, which I represent as Chief Executive here today, certainly has some strong and compelling views on the subject….but I thought I should delve into history first.
Keynote speech: Ensuring Transparent ATAR and Alternative Entry Admissions
Vicki Thomson, Chief Executive, Group of Eight Australia
I am very pleased to be here and thank you for inviting me to speak. I know that the 101 of delivering a speech suggests you must start with a joke, especially if it’s a morning speech. Just to wake everyone up. Sorry, but I totally lucked out on finding one that could accompany this subject matter. Maybe there isn’t much to laugh about.
