The home vineyard is in the Adelaide Hills which is the best place to produce Pinot Noir in South Australia and is loaded with undiscovered potential. After stumbling on the industry through childhood curiosity, David Bowley followed his nose into winemaking, studying and working in Australia, Spain, Croatia, Italy and France before starting Vinteloper in 2008.

Lovers of literature will not want to miss our Literary High Tea where each month you will hear from authors, handpicked by UWA Publishing, as they talk about their latest publications over a High Tea in the University Club Private Dining Room. Richard Rossiter, Thicker Than Water: Marie D’Anger returns to the family home in south-west Australia after years of living in England, to a father whose destructive impulses have been curbed by a stroke, and a mother whose passivity she never understood. Behind her is Edy Baudin and the deep love they shared before he left, suddenly and without explanation. Further back still is her father and his fraught relationships with his mother, brother and step-father. But when Edy follows Marie to Australia, her father’s shocking revelation brings hidden things to the surface. This is quintessential Rossiter: an intense, poetic, family drama and psychological tragedy.

Balinese-born Ruth Joiner has always been an outsider. Orphaned in Bali and brought up by missionaries in the Australian desert, she is unsure of her heritage or her place in the world. At seventeen she runs away to the small town of Lost River. There she meets the enigmatic David Mathews who gives her solace, friendship and a place to live. David disappears from her life but she is left with a home and a daughter who she names Dewi (‘goddess’ in Balinese). It’s more than she could have hoped for, in a life short on opportunity. But as Ruth has to confront her own, all-too early, mortality it is her calm demeanour that makes us confident that Dewi’s future will be more positive.

Breakfast by the Bay
Licence to operate: How corporations must adapt to new community expectations
Date: Wednesday 30 September
Time: 7.00am – 9.00am
Venue: Banquet Hall
Price: Member $52.00 / Guests $62.00 / Table of 10 $580.00

Price includes a two-course breakfast and panel discussion.

Recent headlines have highlighted the risks that can erode a corporation’s social licence. In many cases, the conduct of large and sophisticated institutions has threatened aspects of their social licence – from perceived tax evasion by multinational corporations, through to operations that fall below community expectations. Alongside this, the rise of social media has broadened the stakeholder base who now demand a voice in relation to the affairs of corporations. Best-practice risk management systems, internal controls, legal support, and sound corporate governance policies are not necessarily sufficient to protect organisations from the risk of damage to their social licence. Questions to arise from this shift include: Are we seeing a change in community expectations? Are organisations adapting to these changes? What are some of the warning signs of a social licence at risk? What steps are leading organisations taking to adapt to the new paradigm? Join our panel of corporate leaders as they share their insights, experiences and lessons in relation to the management and protection of the social licences enjoyed by the organisations they lead.

Panellists will include:
Diane Smith Gander, Chairman, Transfield Services
Tony Howarth AO, Non-Executive Director, Wesfarmers
Jane Gouvernet, WA Regional Commissioner, ASIC
Andrew Pascoe, Perth Practice Director, Allens
