[gdlr_column size=”2/3″]We invite members to join us to kick off 2017 with an exclusive forum, in conversation with Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, former CEO and Chair of Shell and now Vice Chair of the UN Global Compact.

Sir Mark will share insights from his considerable experience over many decades at the front line of business and sustainability. During his time at Shell, Sir Mark led the company through two sustainability crises in 1995 – the decommissioning of the Brent Spar oil rig and the resultant public outcry, and the Nigerian military junta’s execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa, a vocal critic of the company.

Sir Mark is also a former Chair of Anglo-American and Board Member of Accenture, HSBC and the Global Reporting Initiative, among numerous other global leadership roles. He also authored the book Responsible Leadership: Lessons from the Front Line of Sustainability and Ethics.

Drawing on Sir Mark’s incredible experience, the discussion will explore responsible leadership and the private sector’s role in driving sustainability.

The conversation with Sir Mark will be led by Sam Mostyn, President, Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) and Non-executive Director of Virgin Australia, Citigroup, Transurban and Director of ClimateWorks Australia.
