MC: Jon Faine, Presenter 774 ABC Morning Programme

The VPELA Barber Lecture will provide the opportunity to hear the Hon. Jeff Kennett speak about his experience as a former Premier of Victoria during which he implemented a massive, and at times abrupt, change agenda.  He will  examine and critique his political legacy and comment on what worked, what didn’t and what, with hindsight, he might have done differently.   The Hon. Mr Kennett will consider what needs to happen to create a globally competitive future for Victoria – economically, culturally, socially, environmentally and politically – to ensure Victoria continues to lead the way, particularly in relation to democracy, planning and growth.
