Looking back on 2015

| December 23, 2015

Thank you for your interest and support throughout the year. As 2015 comes to an end, I’d like to share some highlights and the most popular blogs of the year with you.

At Open Forum we cover a wide range of public policy and social issues, but for two months each we turn our focus on one particular subject and examine it from different angles by asking you to send in your blogs.

This year’s topics were: Social Responsibility, Security and Risk, Vision for Australia, Australia’s Health, The Future of Jobs, and Climate Change. We’re currently discussing Innovation and will continue to do so in January, so please get in touch if you’d like to contribute.

In September Global Access Partners held a highly successful Jobs Summit at NSW Parliament House in Sydney. Federal ministers, public policy makers, chief executives and leading academics discussed current trends and disruptions shaping the future of our jobs. I encourage you to read the full Summit Report here.

And here are some of our most popular blogs this year:

Are your favourites on this list? Let me know what you particularly enjoyed reading on Open Forum this year and what you’d like to see more of. You shape this website with your comments and blogs, and I warmly invite you to contact me with your ideas and concerns.

I’m wishing you all the best for this festive season. Take some time off to reflect and relax, to be grateful and spend time with your loved ones. We’ll be back in early January, and I’m already looking forward to an exciting year with many interesting topics and ideas – so much to discuss!
