The Forum: Leading the Aussie Way, 15/16 May

How is leading Australians different?

What are the essential characteristics of leadership?

There are some leaders we instinctively warm to, and then there are others we love to loathe.

Why? What attracts us to good leaders? Is it the oratory skills of an Obama, the courage of a Churchill, the vision of a Jobs, the brashness of a Branson or perhaps the humility of a Gandhi?

Against the backdrop of the imminent federal election, our specialist panel will consider if there is anything distinctive about the way Australians lead and respond to leadership. Has Jesus' model of sacrifice and service left an indelible mark on our understanding of true leadership?

Our Forum panellists: John Anderson, Mark Scott and Andrew Scippione

Re:think series with Al Stewart; Wednesdays and Thursdays in May & June

We continue through the book of Mark and consider some of the big issues that are addressed throughout this incredible gospel account.

Could Jesus be right about … Leadership, Human nature, Religion, Himself and getting ahead?
