After an excellent, thought provoking and Strategically focussed presentation by Mike Shoebridge of the ASPI last Thursday we are very pleased to open registration for our June Speaker, Mr Steven Grzreskowiak, Deputy Secretary Estate and Infrastructure Group.    Steve will present on the implications of the Defence Strategic update and the Force Structure Plans identification of Key Defence Investments through to 2040.   For those who wish to make the most of this presentation please refer to Chapter 12

of the FSP which outlines the focus and direction of some $30b to be invested in Defence Estate and Infrastructure over the next decade.

Steve's last presentation to the USI-ACT was widely praised and we are privileged to have him back to put the FSP in to Strategic context as it relates to his critical Groups role.   Steve’s short bio is provided below. 

For those with the time I look forward to continuing the return to pre-presentation drinks and networking in the ADC Mess prior to the event.

Warm Regards

Bill Henman
