What a great experience today catching up with so many old friends and colleagues in Adelaide – all together again for the first time in 29 years.
I was deeply moved – in fact a little overwhelmed – seeing so many people I worked so closely nearly 3 decades ago.
The redoubtable Chris Schacht. Lynn Arnold, Anne Levy, Chris Sumner. Crack ministerial staffers – Loine Sweeney, Anne Lambert and Peter Baker. And my old mates Owen Brown and Phil Robins.
A very special thanks to SA’s own global leader in social health research, Professor Fran Baum, for her extremely generous speech launching my political memoir, “After Work, After Play, After All”.
And, of course, a heartfelt thank you to the Hagar Club for graciously hosting the event.
