April 2024 Luncheon | The critical role of Whistleblowers as an effective corporate governance mechanism


Learnings across recent Royal Commissions and other government inquiries


We welcome you to join us for our April event which will be held at the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club, in collaboration with PKF and Mai-Wel Group. During this luncheon, we will explore the problems and solutions around Whistleblowing, exploring what might have been, identifying gaps in reality, and discussing potential remedies.

Whistleblowing remains a critical and ever-evolving corporate governance mechanism. Our discussions will include various topics, such as protecting the vulnerable, upholding organisational values, whistleblowing as a mechanism for promoting organisational growth and sustainability, and enhancing organisational reputation. We’ll also explore why silence no longer needs to be the preferred option.

We will hear from two speakers during our luncheon;


David Morgan, PKF Integrity Partner, who brings over 20 years of expertise in investigations, fraud, corruption, and misconduct. His extensive background includes managing whistleblowers, complainants, and victims, as well as designing and implementing whistleblower programs across diverse industry sectors.


John Cleary, CEO of The Mai-Wel Group and Director of Northern Coalfields Community Care Association. He brings over 17 years’ expertise as a Disability and Aged Care CEO, Director and Executive.  John has lead various organisations through three different Royal Commissions. He received an Australia Day Award in 2017 as Lake Macquarie Citizen of the Year for his support of institutional victims of Child Sexual abuse and has continued his advocacy for vulnerable people throughout his career.


Together, we will delve into best practices for entities in managing concerns, examining both successful strategies and pitfalls to avoid. We hope to see you there!
