GMAV Boardroom Briefing - Tuesday 1st April 2014 - The Fifth Estate: The Inside Story On Political Lobbying

This Event has been rescheduled to Tuesday 1st April, 2014

The Fifth Estate: The Inside Story On Political Lobbying

Presenter: Garry Oliver (Intercapital Group) 

Garry Oliver 

State and Federal Governments have progressively increased their intrusion into the marketplace so senior management needs to understand how best to interface with State and Federal Governments.

Garry Oliver (MBA Deakin) has worked as a political lobbyist since 1974.  His client base has covered a wide variety of public and private sector organisations including large companies, industry associations, professional bodies and public institutions such as universities, TAFE institutes and hospitals. He has even been involved in government-to-government lobbying exercises.

His lobbying assignments have covered practically every part of the economy including the finance sector, tax matters, agriculture, retail, property and planning, health, education, mining and energy and defence.

In this presentation Garry will describe the lobbying process, provide some interesting examples of his work and offer a range of guidelines.

Emotional intelligence: The role of emotion in the workplace 


The first Griffith Business School Alumni Network Breakfast for 2014 will feature a keynote from Professor Peter Jordan, who will present 'Emotional intelligence: the role of emotion in the workplace.'

The workplace is an emotional setting. At work we all experience highs and lows, pleasant and unpleasant surprises, triumph and disaster. On any given day we may encounter colleagues or supervise staff who are afraid, concerned, happy, mad, sad, glad or bad. How we manage these situations can be a critical determinant of our success. At this breakfast event we will examine the role of emotions in the workplace, the impact that emotions can have on individuals and groups, and how to successfully manage them.

Professor Peter Jordan
