Check Against Delivery
Thank you Andreas for your generous introduction and for your inspired leadership of the WFE.
It is an honour and a privilege to be here this evening, addressing such a large group of influential leaders, key economic actors in your nations – leaders who cannot only influence but in many cases lead the corporate governance agenda.
I would like to begin by acknowledging the tradiational owners of the land on which we meet: the Gadigal people of the Eora nation and their Elders, past.
I also am very happy to acknowledge that we meet in the presence of one of our most revered Elders, Dame Marie Bashir.
