Australian of the Year to Address the National Press Club
Simon McKeon, Australian of the Year 2011, will today address the National Press Club.
Simon’s Address – Why giving is good for all – will draw on his rich experience as a social entrepreneur. His efforts to support multiple Australian and international charities has earned him great admiration. For Simon though, it is about more than just donating money to a cause; it is about big business offering their skills, giving their time and becoming personally engaged to help those less fortunate.
The National Press Club is one of Australia’s most recognised vehicles for those shaping Australian society. It is an iconic venue chosen for major statements and for initiating change.
