Vincent Fairfax Oration


ANZ CEO, Shayne Elliott, will discuss Ethics in Banking.

The Vincent Fairfax Oration, part of a wider program funded by the Vincent Fairfax Ethics in Leadership Foundation, is delivered in June each year and was established as a way of engaging leaders from different sectors of society in discussion, debate and on-going conversations about ethics and leadership. The Oration focuses on ethics and leadership as they apply to topics of relevance to Australian society. Recent past speakers have included Gail Kelly, Professor Elizabeth Blackburn, Peter Greste, Dr Tim Soutphommasane and Professor Doug Hilton.

Sir Vincent Fairfax was a leading member of the Australian business community. He believed that senior leadership roles brought responsibility in one’s business life and to the broader community and that ethical leadership should not be left to chance but be developed.
