The 2017 Hargrave Lecture

The annual Hargrave Lecture is the highlight of The Illawarra Connection calendar.

The Hargrave Lecture is traditionally presented by an eminent public figure, usually with links to the Illawarra.

This year we are pleased to welcome John Borghetti AM, who has a close association with the University of Wollongong Sydney Business School.

John Borghetti commenced as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of the Virgin Australia Group in May 2010.  Under his leadership, the Group has undergone a strategic repositioning.

John has had over 40 years’ experience in aviation, including a long career at Qantas.

John is a Director of Coca Cola Amatil and the Australian Chamber Orchestra. He has previously served as a Director of Energy Australia, the NSW Customer Advisory Board, Jetset Travelworld, Sydney FC, Piper Aircraft (USA), The Australian Ballet and CARE Australia.

We encourage all of our members and guests to join us to hear John speak on the topic of Leadership in Practice.
