Date: Saturday 30 May
Time: 2.30pm – 4.30pm
Venue: Private Dining Room
Price: $45.00

Price includes high tea and a presentation by author Kate Campbell (My Story).

Lovers of literature will not want to miss our Literary High Tea. 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.

Kate Campbell: My Story. In 2007, Kate Campbell suffered life threatening injuries when the boat she was a passenger on crashed into a pylon on the Swan River. She beat the odds and woke from a coma only to face horrendous injuries, bouts of depression, multiple surgeries and physical rehabilitation. What also lay ahead was a long legal battle with the driver of the boat, Luke Woollard. For nearly five years, Kate was in and out of the courts fighting for justice, all the while dealing with personal issues, before a chance meeting with a top lawyer finally saw her life turn around.

My Story will be on sale throughout May at Club Reception for a discounted Members rate.

Breakfast by the Bay: Breaking the boom-bust cycle of WA’s resource dependency
Date: Wednesday 3 June
Time: 7.00am – 9.00am
Venue: Banquet Hall
Price: Members $52.00 / Guests $62.00 / Table of 10 $580.00

Price includes a two-course sit down breakfast and a panel discussion

The WA economy has been dependent on mining and resources since the Goldfields bonanza of the 1890s. Throughout the 20th century WA’s economic fortunes waxed and waned on the strength of commodity prices and the development of our minerals and energy sector. Over the past twenty-five years the state has enjoyed significant economic growth and rising living standards due to its resources sector. However, the volatility of commodities makes the state vulnerable to economic booms and their inevitable busts. Minerals and energy account for around 90% of the state’s export revenue and any downturn in commodity prices impacts adversely on the WA economy. What is needed is a diversification of the state economy through the development of alternative industries less sensitive to commodity prices. This will require business and government to look at investment in export-focused industries such as agribusiness, manufacturing, tourism, education and training as well as professional, scientific and technical services. It will demand a greater focus on entrepreneurship and innovation across all sectors, including government, and the fostering of an entrepreneurial spirit to support the foundation and growth of small to medium enterprises. This panel will bring together experts with a view to discuss ways to help foster this outcome and set a new path for the state’s economy. Proudly supported by the UWA Business School.
