Policy Futures: A Reform Agenda launched in the Churchill Policy Room at Federal Parliament on Monday 15th March 2021

This week I was invited to the inaugural Churchill Policy Room at Federal Parliament to share my ideas and expertise to help lead Australia out of the COVID recession.

The occasion was the launch of Policy Futures: A Reform Agenda, showcasing the learnings and recommendations from eleven Churchill Fellows who are working hard to solve an incredibly diverse range of issues facing our community today.

The flagship publication of the Policy Impact Program is a partnership between the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust and the University of Queensland. It is intended that this new publication, Policy Futures: A Reform Agenda, will serve to increase the accessibility of valuable evidence and experiences to policy makers within Australia.

I am honoured to be selected as one of the inaugural Policy Impact Fellows. It was an incredible opportunity and experience speaking to invited guests in the Churchill Policy Room in Parliament House about how ‘Straight Talking’ ex-offenders can break the cycle and reduce recidivism.

My sincere thanks to Dr Kirsty Guster, Jennifer Yarnold, Adam Davey, Professor Joe Graffam, Professor Lorana Bartels, my mother Joan Webster OAM, the Policy Impact Program Steering Committee and Policy Impact Program Selection Committee, for all their support helping me achieve this milestone and experience this incredible event.
