Mr Clifford is one of the most prominent and influential business leaders in Australia. As Chairman of Qantas and previously CEO of Rio Tinto, he has transformed the Australian business landscape.
Robert Gottliebsen, the Founding Editor of Business Review Weekly, has argued that “Leigh Clifford, more than any other person in Australia, changed the culture of the workplace in the mining industry and made Australia one of the most productive mining areas in the world.”
Leigh Clifford was appointed Chairman of Qantas in November 2007, and was the Chief Executive of Rio Tinto from 2000 to 2007. He is Chairman of Bechtel Australia Pty Ltd (and on the Board of Bechtel Group Inc) and Chairman of the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute. He is a Senior Advisor to Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co and a Board Member of the National Gallery of Victoria Foundation. Mr Clifford was also previously a Director of Barclays Bank.
Mr Clifford has argued vociferously of the need to reform the Fair Work Act, saying it is preventing companies from achieving desperately needed productivity improvements, and this is a unique opportunity for our members and supporters to hear Mr Clifford.
