20TH ANNIVERSARY OF SEPTEMBER 11 (9/11) COMMERATION AND DINNER

September, 2021

The terrorist attacks on the USA on September 11 2001 sent shockwaves around the world, altering the psyche of a generation and reshaping the political and strategic landscape. We joined together to remember those innocent civilians who died not only on September 11 but before and since in terrorist attacks around the world. We also paid tribute to our great ally and partner, the USA, bastion of Western values and ideals, and beacon of hope to all those seeking freedom.

BACK TO BUSINESS MINI-EVENTS

June and July 2020

After the lifting of lockdowns in Brisbane, we held two mini-events to bring people back to the CBD. In keeping with the continuing restrictions, numbers were restricted to ten people, allowing everyone to reconnect and share news and experiences during the lockdown.

MALAYSIA BRIEFING

February 2020

As Malaysia's Pakatan Harapan coalition Government collapsed, we hosted the Malaysian Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, and we held a dinner at Queensland Parliament to discuss the political, strategic and economic implications for Malaysia. Having lead Malaysia out of 63 years of continuous rule by the previous Government, and having experienced less than two years of rule, the collapse was a shock but we are always hopeful for Malaysia's future.

We have held hundreds of events over the years. Have a look at some of our past events highlights.
