The annual Oration honours the significant contribution of Dr David Parkin OAM to Australian society in leadership, sport and education and promotes the advancement of public knowledge by exploring the challenges and opportunities for sport to act as a driver of social change.

Held on Thursday 13th of July, 2017 at Deakin Edge, Federation Square, this year's Oration 'The pursuit of excellence and importance of culture' will be delivered by Dr Ric Charlesworth AO, a highly successful player and coach and Australian sporting icon.

His greatest achievement was back to back Olympic gold medals while coaching the Australian Women's team. As an athlete and coach, Dr Charlesworth has long been committed to the pursuit of excellence.
