The Challenges of Governance: Perspectives from the Healthcare and Education Sectors in the UK.

The SA/NT Division of The Australian Institute of Company Directors are excited to present an evening with the inaugral Chairman of the British National Health Service (NHS) — Sir Malcolm Grant CBE – at this year’s Annual Dinner.

New Zealand born Sir Malcolm graduated from law and then forged a career in England. Appointed the NHS Chairman in 2011, the independent board was set up to chart a future course for the health service. Sir Malcolm was an expert adviser to the governments of France and Russia, and to universities in the USA, UK and Australia on higher education. He also served on the board of Genomics England, which experiments with whole genome sequencing – a new era of molecular medicine and an innovation that in Sir Malcolm’s mind, is essential if Western health systems are to be affordable in the long term.

This year’s dinner is held at the acclaimed Adelaide Convention Centre, with sponsored wine from a local boutique SA winery, Main & Cherry.

Join us as Sir Malcolm shares his experiences of the Health & Education sectors in the UK. With recent governance reform to our health system and the critical importance of education to our State’s future, the global view that Sir Malcolm will bring promises to be of great interest. He will be interviewed in an on the couch style format by Company Director magazine Editor-in-Chief, Narelle Hooper MAICD.

The dinner will be an exceptional opportunity to network and reconnect with business leaders of SA. Book early to avoid missing out on this must attend event in the business calendar.
