Dr Arne to speak at the 2017 National Student Leadership Forum

We’re delighted to announce that Dr Arne Rubinstein will appear at this year’s National Student Leadership Forum [NSLF] this September in Canberra. Joining key speakers such as Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, Opposition Leader, Bill Shorten and a host of MP’s and Australian Senators, Dr Arne will present a keynote address to a group of future Australian leaders on Friday, 8th September.

NSLF is a four-day conference that brings together today’s leaders and the leaders of tomorrow to discuss openly who they are and what they believe. Keynote addresses and workshops are designed to share experiences and stories with a new generation.

Specifically, Dr Arne has been invited to share his life story with forum attendees, discussing both his successes and failures while providing critical insights into the transition into adulthood with a particular focus on the importance of community.

Dr Arne Rubinstein is an internationally recognised expert on Rites of Passage and adolescent development. He has been running programs for teenagers and delivering cutting-edge leadership training in Australia and internationally for over 20 years. A medical doctor, workshop facilitator and speaker, Dr Arne has helped to create leadership training, camps and seminars that have been attended by over 25,000 people globally including CEOs and senior executives from some of Australia’s largest companies.

He is also Author of the best-seller The Making of Men, and founder of The Making of Men, an organisation created to support teenagers to successfully make a safe, healthy transition to young adults.

“It’s such an honour to be invited to speak at the NSLF this year. Australia has produced an incredible number of leaders in a diverse range of fields in the past and I am confident and excited for the next generation to impart their gifts and talents on the wider community and the world,” said Rubinstein.

“With the right guidance, mentors and support we can help our next batch of leaders to make a great impact on society,” he continued.

Dr Arne’s keynote address will commence on Friday, 8th September from 6 pm at the Hyatt Hotel, Canberra during the NSLF feast. The forum will see over 200 young men and women from both Australia and the Pacific Nations attend with approximately 70 speakers and facilitators presenting keynotes and workshops throughout the four-day conference.
