I enjoyed the opportunity to share my insights on Australian leadership with +Victor Perton 
+David Thomas "Australia’s egalitarian society and culture throws up some unique and interesting challenges for its leaders who have to counter the “tall poppy syndrome”, gain the respect of their followers whilst maintaining the “mateship” and “earthiness” demanded by the culture, and yet meet the attributes of gravitas, intelligence and decisiveness required of its leaders. I don’t think it's any coincidence that some of Australia’s most respected and celebrated business leaders are the product of migrant families (eg Italians and Greeks) who can inspire and lead by leaning on a “rags to riches” story which resonates with the average Aussie.

"I thought it was interesting in the recent Federal Election campaign that Malcolm Turnbull, one of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs and investors, had to counter the tag of “Mr Harbourfront Mansion” by explaining his humble upbringing and tough early life as the product of broken home. It was interesting that this aspect of his background gained more resonance with voters than his success as a business leader and entrepreneur."
