Radford Institute presents Prof Tom Frame
Is politics a vocation? Educating for public life.
A Radford Institute presentation by Professor Tom Frame
Date Wednesday 29 May
Time 6.00 pm
Venue Heath Lecture Theatre
Leadership has become more complicated, partly because of the nature of modern communications. Anybody with a computer is essentially a global publisher. They can influence opinions and shape views in ways they previously couldn't. How is it that national leaders are able to shape or reflect the consensus, then move the nation forward to reach its full potential, as so many disparate groups pull in different directions?
Professor Tom Frame is the inaugural Director of the UNSW Canberra Public Leadership Research Group, with responsibility for the establishment of the John Howard Prime Ministerial Library in Old Parliament House. Prior to this, he served as Director of St Mark’s National Theological Centre (2007-14), Bishop to the Australian Defence Force (2001-07) and held numerous positions in the Royal Australian Navy. He is the author or editor of more than 40 books and judged the inaugural Prime Minister’s Prize for Australian History in 2007.
