We welcome you to join us for our May event which will be held at the Newcastle Cruising Yacht Club, in collaboration with the University of Newcastle. During this luncheon, we will hear from The Hon Patricia Forsythe AM. As a distinguished Novocastrian, Patricia will share with us her journey from teacher to Parliamentarian, business advocate, to non-executive Director and diplomat and now the University of Newcastle’s eighth chancellor.


During our time together, we will gain a unique perspective and valuable insight into her illustrious career in business and leadership and have the rare opportunity to ask questions and hear of the trials and tribulations that The Hon Patricia has overcome throughout her career.
