The Queensland Government's Wild Rivers legislation and the Australian Government's Indigenous Employment Covenant attempt to provide solutions to ending indigenous welfare dependence, but do we need to approach it differently?

As a director of Queensland Rail and a co-owner of the South Sydney Rabbittohs, Holmes a Court will be sharing his thoughts and insight into significant institutions, both public and private and rethinking community and business partnerships.

As a champion of reform, Peter will present a refreshing and highly thought provoking insight into how Australia needs to change the way business and government thinks and acts about implementing workable long term solutions for the sustainable development and workforce engagement in our top end.
