There are few people who can claim they’ve had as an exciting career as Kerry O’Brien. The renowned journalist of fifty years has been around the world for his work, interviewing the likes of Nelson Mandela, Bette Midler and Robin Williams for his roles on The 7:30 Report and Four Corners.
The Foundation was fortunate enough to have Mr O’Brien join us as keynote speaker for our Life & Times Function last week. Hosted by board chair Bernard Curran, it included corporate partners, friends and supporters of The Common Good, all coming together to hear about the incredible leadership and inspiring journey of Kerry O’Brien. Mr O'Brien was also announced as a new ambassador for our initiative, The Common Good.
Guests were also able to hear about some of the breakthrough, life-changing research being carried out by Dr Eamonn Eeles. Collaborating with CSIRO and other major stakeholders, Dr Eeles is part of a major dementia research project, looking at new ways to scan for early onset of the horrible disease.
A huge thank you to everyone who was involved in the planning and running of the event, and a special thanks to BDO, Hentley Farm and Dello Mano, for providing the venue, refreshments and small gifts for all of our guests.
