The Thought Leaders speaker series is brought to you by The Old Geelong Collegians' Association (OGCA). In each episode we speak with an Old Collegian who is a leader in their chosen field, with an interesting story to tell.
These episodes are recorded via Microsoft Teams as an interactive speaker event with members of our community listening live at home, with the opportunity for a Q and A session at the conclusion. A podcast and video of each session will follow.
