The annual Oration honours the significant contribution of Sir Wilfred Brookes, grandson of Alfred Deakin, the second Prime Minister of Australia after whom Deakin University is named. The Brookes Oration was established in 2006 to encourage thoughtful debate about the contribution of corporate Australia in the global community.

This year's Oration, Trust, Reputation and Consumer Empowerment will be delivered by the Honourable Anna Bligh AC, Chief Executive of the Australian Bankers' Association, former Premier of Queensland and one of Australia's most recognisable female leaders.

With a long and distinguished career in politics, Ms Bligh’s leadership came to national and international attention as she led the response and recovery effort through the 2011 Queensland floods. Following her political career, Ms Bligh has continued to advocate strongly for education, the role of women in public life and services to the not-for-profit sector.
