Thank you Andreas for your generous introduction and for your inspired leadership of the WFE.
It is an honour and a privilege to be here this evening, addressing such a large group of influential leaders, key economic actors in your nations – leaders who cannot only influence but in many cases lead the corporate governance agenda.
I would like to begin by acknowledging the tradiational owners of the land on which we meet: the Gadigal people of the Eora nation and their Elders, past.
I also am very happy to acknowledge that we meet in the presence of one of our most revered Elders, Dame Marie Bashir.
Christine, Wendy and club members,

The road that has brought me here today has been a fascinating one - one I have found incredibly rewarding. I had been Sex Discrimination Commissioner for three and a half years before I was asked to formally conduct a Review into the Treatment of Women at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) and in the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
