Join the Australian Institute for Progress over dinner for the fourth annual Sir Thomas McIlwraith Lecture, with guest speaker Sir Leo Hielscher AC, on Wednesday evening July 18, 2018.

Sir Leo has unique personal insights into the development of Queensland through a career spanning 50 years of public service at the highest levels, including as Queensland Under Treasurer and Chairman of Queensland Treasury Corporation. During his career Sir Leo oversaw the transformation of the state from a rural backwater to an agricultural, minerals and tourism powerhouse.
