Queensland University of Technology visit and speech

I was delighted to be invited by Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Coaldrake to speak at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) on 12 July about energy reform.

It was fantastic to also visit QUT’s “The Cube” and robotics centre where I had the opportunity to meet and chat with staff about our mutual work in the energy and environment sectors.

QUT is at the forefront of innovation when it comes to helping protect the Great Barrier Reef. Their underwater robot (pictured) is a world first invention!







Visit to Little Learners childcare

On 6 July, I visited Little Learners childcare in Camberwell as part of NAIDOC week and to see their display celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders culture, history and language. 

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. It is an opportunity for all Australians to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

This year’s theme is Our Language Matters in recognition of the vital role Indigenous languages play in promoting community wellbeing and culture.





Servants Community Housing

Servants Community Housing is an important organisation providing affordable accommodation and safe housing for vulnerable people in my electorate.

On 6 July, it was terrific to visit Servants Community Housing to discuss how plans for the new women’s shelter are progressing with CEO Amanda Donohue and Chairman Warren Clark.

During my visit, I got to chat with some of the residents including Phil who couldn’t wait to show this devoted Blues fan his Tiger’s memorabilia.  





Small business lunch

On 6 July, I attended a small business lunch at Colombo's in Balwyn where I was able to speak with local business owners about the importance of ensuring Australia’s energy security and affordability.

The Turnbull Government’s small business tax cuts and $20,000 instant asset write-off are increasing business confidence.

It’s small business – not government – which create jobs. 


Planting trees at Beckett Park

On 6 July, it was terrific to join Kooyong’s Green Army at Beckett Park in Balwyn and join in planting trees as part of their mission to promote conservation practices.


Green Army has helped many young people learn the skills to become employed in the sustainability sector.

Visit to Belmore School

On 30 June, I had an inspirational morning with the students and staff at Belmore School where I awarded this year's school leaders with their well-deserved badges and presented students with term two awards.

In an act of kindness, Mr Kirk Edwards, Chief Executive Officer of Village Cinemas, and his wife Elizabeth provided free movie tickets to the students, teachers and carers. Their generous act was greatly appreciated by the whole school community and all students and staff are looking forward to a day at the cinema.









Smart Cities Research Institute

On 29 June, it was impressive to see what our urban future holds at the recently launched Smart Cities Research Institute at Swinburne University of Technology with Angus Taylor MP, Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation, and to learn about the work the institute will do to make cities more liveable and sustainable for all.

A smart city is one that utilises information and communication technology to provide innovative and efficient services. A smart city raises the standard of living for all while promoting sustainability and reducing human impact on the environment. Most of all a smart city introduces fresh opportunities for citizens to participate in the design decisions about the urban environment that directly affects them.

As part of the Smart Cities Research Institute's vision, citizens become the designers of the cities in which they live, allowing for more user focused urban planning, which, when combined with ICT, also provides more efficient services. The Smart Cities Research Institute will tackle challenges facing cities by collaborating with industry, business and community.




Hawthorn Rotary Changeover Dinner

On 29 June, I attended the Hawthorn Rotary Club Leaders’ Changeover Dinner at the Greenacres Gold Club in Kew. As the patron of the Hawthorn Rotary Club, I was delighted to join club members in thanking outgoing president, Meredith Hayes and welcoming new president, Katrina Flinn.

Hawthorn Rotary has a number of community projects underway including supporting the homeless and long-term unemployed. Each year Hawthorn Rotary hosts a Christmas lunch for approximately 250 locals who would otherwise spend Christmas on their own.

I am pictured at the changeover dinner with Councillor Phillip Healey, Andrew Tait - Hawthorn Community Chest, incoming President Katrina Flinn and outgoing President Meredith Hayes.


Book Launch: The Forgotten Speeches

On 28 June, I was delighted to launch David Furse-Roberts’ book Menzies: The Forgotten Speeches at Parliament House in Melbourne.

Sir Robert Menzies is not only the founder of the Liberal Party, but also serves as the gold standard for how to approach the role of being a representative of the people.

These forgotten speeches have only now been transcribed into book form, and I commend the brilliant work of David Furse-Roberts for bringing them to light, particularly given their relevance even today.

The book represents a reinvigoration of the importance and continued relevance of Sir Robert Menzies in the 21st century, continuing his legacy as one of the great Australian Prime Ministers.





2017 Energy Efficiency Council National Forum

On 28 June, I had the great pleasure to speak about energy efficiency at the 2017 Energy Efficiency Council National Forum.

Energy efficiency is critical for lower prices, for a more stable system and as we transition to a lower emissions future – and technology and innovation is key to energy efficiency.

The Turnbull Government is working to help address these issues and improve energy efficiency through regulation reforms.
