Looking back on 2014

| December 23, 2014

I would like to thank you, the Open Forum community, for your support and engagement throughout the year. You are instrumental in shaping this website with your blogs, ideas and comments.

Let’s look back on the year that was, revisit the broad range of content and some of the most successful blogs this year.

We started 2014 by exploring Health & Wellbeing. This was followed by featured forums on Art & Culture, Urban Planning, Sport in Australia, Education and Employment. Until the end of January we will be discussing Social Responsibility, and I’d love to hear from you if you would like to contribute a blog.

In September Global Access Partners held its Annual Growth Summit in the NSW Parliament House in Sydney. Federal ministers, public policy makers, chief executives and leading academics discussed education in Australia today and its importance to the future of the nation.

Some of our most popular blogs this year were:

And here are just a few of my favourites – no exhaustive list and in no particular order:

I warmly invite you to read or re-read these blogs. Let me know which posts you particularly enjoyed this year and which topics you’d like to read about on Open Forum in 2015.

I wish you all the best for this festive season. We will be back in January, and I’m already looking forward to a successful and collaborative year.
