Our Leaders' lunches are a great opportunity for open discussion with senior industry representatives around a single table.

His previous service ministries include Finance, Local Government, Housing, State Growth, Health, Small Business, Science and Technology, and Police, Fire and Emergency Management, as well as Leader of the House.
