LV talks leadership with Julian Burnside

15 November 2011 By Stefan Grun

In October LV’s Marketing and Communications Manager Stefan Grun was privileged to be able to interview Julian Burnside AO QC, our country’s leading advocate in relation to Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers and the protection of human rights. In 2009 Julian was awarded an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) for his work as a human rights advocate, and for his services to the arts and the law.

Whilst the main topic of conversation was leadership, in particular Julian’s views on Australia’s current political leaders, the conversation also covered a range of his thought on arts, public speaking and his work in establishing two landmark not-for-profit organisations, Spare Rooms for Refugees and Spare Lawyers for Refugees.
