PPA Hosts Defence Industry Minister for the Defence Connect Budget Summit

After an incredibly hectic budget week (with no less than 6 events!), Precision Public Affairs was honoured to host both the Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Pat Conroy MP, and the Shadow Minister for Defence Industry, the Hon Andrew Hastie MP, for the 5th Annual Defence Connect Budget Summit, held at Australian Parliament House.

Over 400 senior defence industry leaders gathered in the greathall to hear the Minister and Shadow Minister deliver their first post-budget addresses, outlining their consecutive visions for a  fit for purpose  defence industry, that is essential to delivering an integrated and focused ADF that can respond to Australia’s deteriorating circumstances.

PPA was delighted to host MAJGEN (retired) Andrew Bottrell AO, CSC and Bar, DSM, Jennifer Parker and Marcus Hellyer, for a lively, constructive, yet ultimately collaborative, discussion on the current challenges facing the defence portfolio. It was also wonderful to hear directly from PPA’s clients, Jae Daniel of AIM and Joel Nevin of Blacktree Technology, as well as Amy McDonnell, on the challenges facing, and opportunities available to, defence industry #smes.
