The value of leadership
A speech by Greg Medcraft, Chairman, Australian Securities and Investments Commission to the University of Melbourne Business and Economics Student Leadership Forum, Melbourne, 31 July 2015
Good morning everyone. Thank you for this opportunity to speak about the value of leadership.
It’s great to be here at Melbourne University. It doesn’t seem all that long ago that I was here at Melbourne University studying commerce, even though a lot has changed in the world since then.
As the Chairman of ASIC, I know a bit about the financial sector and a bit about public service. But, at the end of the day, I am only one person. One person who needs to depend on a wide range of people with a wide range of skills.
I rely on a wide range of individuals every day in order to do my job as Chairman, whether they are a Commissioner, Executive Leader of a team, or a new graduate starting out in their career at ASIC.
