EES Lunch with Lucy Turnbull AO


From: Monday March 18, 2019, 12:00 pm

To: Monday March 18, 2019, 1:45 pm

The Economic Society of Australia (NSW Branch) proudly sponsors the Emerging Economist Series. The series of six luncheons, held at the Reserve Bank of Australia in Sydney, gives young economists the opportunity to discuss critical issues with prominent Australian policymakers, as well as network with colleagues in business, academia and the public service. The luncheons include an interview-style discussion with the key-note speaker, exploring the issues they have faced during their careers and highlighting Australia’s key economic challenges going forward. 

The Series has been inspiring, educating and entertaining emerging economists for ten years. 

We have a terrific line up of special guests: 

Lucy Turnbull Chief Commissioner, Greater Sydney Council; Prof. Emeritus Geoff Harcourt, UNSW; Nicholas Gruen, CEO, Lateral Economics; Wayne Byres, Chairman, APRA; Stephen Koukoulas, MD, Market Economics and Maxine McKew, Journalist and Politician.

If you are unable to attend all six lunches you may register for each lunch individually for a cost of $95.  The first lunch in this Series takes place on 18 March with special guest, Lucy Turnbull AO.
