NOTICE OF LECTURE 18THJULY 2018 @ 1145HRS Meet and Greet.

Most important!

Please note that this lecture is bound by Chatham House Rules!

TOPIC: Current and future threats to Australia’s National Security

We live in an increasingly complex and turbulent world. Our news cycle is dominated by stories of Jihadist terrorism and the corporate nature of Al Qaeda and its affiliates, trafficking oil, drugs and antiquities to fund its ambitions. 

All too often there are also stories of Australians who have been radicalised and pose a threat domestically and overseas. We also have concerns regarding our largest trading partner’s ambitions in our shared region and old and trusted allies appear to repudiate their leadership of alliances built up since WW2.


Another major concern is the hacking of highly sensitive and what should be secure data within our major Military, Government and Private Sectors. 

Against this backdrop, our guest speaker shall be highlighting some of the challenges confronting Australia’s future.

A list of those attending has to be provided to the lecturer 24hrs before the lecture. Please understand only those who have expressed their desire to attend by the RSVP date and time will be admitted to RUSI Hall. RSVP BY MIDDAY 16thJULY 2018.   

Bookings to Secretary, S Richard Jeffreys OAM  via phone or email.

Before joining the Air Force in 1989, Air Commodore Ken Robinson worked for five years in the private sector. Following initial officer training he was posted to No 114 Mobile Control and Reporting Unit (114MCRU) where Air Commodore Robinson deployed on numerous exercises throughout Northern and Western Australia as the adjutant of 114MCRU.

Air Commodore Robinson completed his MBA in 2001 and is also a graduate of the Australian Command and Staff Course (2004). He subsequently held command of No 28 Squadron throughout 2005. During this first command tour, Air Commodore Robinson was briefly assigned to the Military Justice Implementation Team. In 2006, Air Commodore Robinson was appointed Director of Personnel Reserves and, in the 2008 Australia Day Honours List, he was awarded the Conspicuous Service Cross for his service as the Director. Air Commodore Robinson commenced his second command appointment in January 2009, as commanding officer of No 324 Combat Support Squadron (324CSS) at Butterworth, Malaysia—leading the logistic and administrative support to Australian Defence Force activities throughout South East Asia. 

During his three years in Malaysia, Air Commodore Robinson was force assigned to Joint Operations Command on four occasions as the national commander of the Army, Navy and Air Force elements participating in Five Power Defence Arrangements exercises in South East Asia.
