I am honored to be delivering the 2014 Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Oration on the topic of university-community engagement. It is a particular pleasure to be the guest of a university whose purpose is “to further develop valued citizens for the benefit of Western Australia and beyond through teaching and research inspired by engagement and partnerships," and at a university whose Vice Chancellor, Kerry Cox, has been a good friend and colleague for many years.

The Right Honourable The Lord Mayor Ms Lisa Scaffidi
I have had the great honour of serving as the Lord Mayor of the City of Perth now for six years and as I hope you can appreciate around the daily "ups and downs" of public office, the focus on significant capital expenditure projects for our City and more recently the very strategic discussions about local government reform I have had the most incredible journey that has enabled me to observe learn, enter and glimpse worlds that normally would not be mine to see.
