Mike Pezzullo, the first son of Italian working-class migrants, wanted to be a history professor.  It was while studying at the University of Sydney in the early 1980s that he was steered away from academia and was encouraged to consider a more secure future in government service.

In September of this year, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull overhauled the top ranks of the federal public service, naming Mike Pezzullo who currently heads the Department of Immigration and Border Protection as head of the new Home Affairs Department that is to be established in 2018.

Midweekers are available to women and men of all ages who want to come and listen to inspiring stories from our local men, as well as to understand some of the key issues facing young guys in our region. You don’t have to be a guy to come to a Midweeker – just interested in supporting young guys and their families.

Richard Denniss

Richard Denniss is the Chief Economist at The Australia Institute. He is a prominent Australian economist, author and public policy commentator, as well as a former Adjunct Associate Professor in the Crawford School of Public Policy at ANU, and UC. He can often be described as a constant thorn in the side of politicians on both sides, due to his habit of skewering dodgy economic justifications for policy. His speeches are always very entertaining and interesting.
