One of the country’s leading professional chairmen and company directors will lift the lid on what is keeping Australian directors awake at night at Brisbane’s Biggest Boardroom Luncheon today (Mar 10).

Graham Bradley AM FAICD will address and engage with business leaders from Brisbane and throughout the state at the Pullman Brisbane from 12pm to 2pm, in the first of a series of 2014 Boardroom Luncheons.

The series, hosted by the Australian Institute of Company Directors in partnership with Griffith Business School, brings the Queensland business community together to consider the opinions and experiences of some of the country’s leading business commentators and analysts.

“The expert knowledge of our presenters is both relevant and influential,” Professor Michael Powell, Pro Vice Chancellor (Business), Griffith University, said.

“Queensland business leaders attending the year’s first Boardroom Luncheon can anticipate a telling and useful insight into current thoughts and trends among directors making important, far-reaching decisions each day.”

The in-depth discussion will be moderated by award-winning journalist Madonna King.

Graham Bradley is a professional company director. He is currently Non-Executive Chairman of Stockland Corporation, Energy Australia Holdings and HSBC Bank Australia.

He also chairs Virgin Australia International Holdings, junior gas explorer Po Valley Energy, and is a director of GI Dynamics. He was appointed chair of Infrastructure NSW in 2013.

Mr Bradley was President of the Business Council of Australia from 2009-11 and is now a director of the European Australian Business Council.

He was made a Distinguished Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors NSW in 2012 in recognition of his contribution to good governance in Australia.

Professor Powell said the partnership forged between Griffith Business School and AICD through the series was important.

“The link between education and industry is crucial, and Griffith Business School places great importance on strategic relationships that can inform our academic and teaching staff, and can influence and prepare the next generation of business leaders to come out of Griffith University.”
