The Future of Australia's Security Thinking.

By Australia's Future Strategic Leaders.

Palace Electric Theatre, Canberra
Friday 28 November 2014
4.30-6.00 followed by a networking event in the bar

Picture this. Seven future strategic leaders delivering six-minute bursts about a topic they’re passionate about a topic they also feel is of importance to Australia’s national security.

And their talks are engaging, edgy and arguing a specific point or position. Expect innovative thinking and insights, even some controversy. A sloppy slide-show it’s not.

It runs for one hour in the arthouse-style setting of Palace Electric Theatre, and is followed with networking by the bar - your chance to engage in conversation with Australia’s future security leaders.
