Registration is closed

In our March event, we continue our exploration of capability issues with the Commandant of the Royal Military College of Australia, Brigadier Rupert Hoskin AM, who will speak about a new body of work on leadership.

The Australian Army’s approach to leadership has been developed over a long period and underpins its capability and reputation. But in a changing world, even highly successful models must be constantly tested and enhanced if they are to remain relevant. As part of his “Army in Motion” strategy, the Chief of Army has appointed the Commandant of RMC-A as Director Army Leadership and tasked him to review the Army's leadership development model, baseline its current effectiveness, benchmark its approach against other military and civilian organisations, and implement whatever measures are required to maintain excellence.  In this presentation, Brigadier Hoskin will outline progress to date and seek input from the audience, prior to a more formal exposition in a wider audience scheduled for July. This special USI event is a terrific opportunity for members and guests to inject their own experience into Army's thinking on this critical subject.

The presentation will be held in the Spender Theatre at the Australian Defence College, Weston creek, on Thursday 21 March, commencing at 1800hrs.  Entry is free, but registration is required. You can register here or by contacting Mickey in our office (T: 02 6266 3446; E:

Please join us in the ADC Mess for networking from 1700hrs.

Members and guests are reminded that photo ID is required for access to the Weston Creek campus.
