Innovation, entrepreneurship and risk-taking are at the heart of Malcolm Turnbull’s career. As Australia’s 29th Prime Minister (2015-2018), Malcolm’s first major initiative was to launch the National Innovation and Science Agenda, aimed to support innovative businesses, grow private sector investment in research commercialisation, and increase the flow of venture capital to high potential startups. In addition, it sought to boost digital literacy and skills in STEM subjects amongst young Australians.

During his Prime Ministership, he also reformed Australia’s personal income tax, education and childcare systems, oversaw the legalisation of same sex marriage and announced the construction of the biggest pumped hydro scheme in the southern hemisphere.

Prior to entering politics, he co-founded the first big Australian Internet company, OzEmail Ltd, listing it on the NASDAQ in 1996 & selling it to Worldcom three years later. In 1997 Malcolm joined Goldman Sachs & as partner headed their Australian business for 4years.

Since leaving politics, Malcolm resumed his business career, including as a senior adviser at KKR, & speaks regularly at global conferences.
