Our Guest Presenter this year was Jerry Adams who is a charismatic speaker and had the audience chucking at his anecdotes. Jerry is a professional company director and some of his directorships include: Chairman, Berger Paints Bangladesh Ltd Chairman, Bolix SA; the University of Adelaide Business School Advisory Board; the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, SA. He has served as the interim Dean of the University of Adelaide Business School and the interim CEO of the RSPCA SA.
It was great to see the students and their families mingling with our guests and hopefully getting some insight into what their future paths may be.
Congratulations to all of our prize winning students on their outstanding achievements in Economics!
