Guest Speakers (3 min each)

Julien Vincent, Lead Campaigner, Market Forces: On the 18th of October, Market Forces and 350.org will be calling on thousands of Australians to turn out at bank branches around Australia and publicly close their accounts in protest if the big banks won’t stop funding the dirty fossil fuel industry in Australia’s biggest ever day of divestment action on fossil fuels. Don’t miss this opportunity to find out how you can get involved!

Michael Salvatico, ESG Research – Client Coverage, MSCI Inc. and Co-founder, Climakind: Companies that misuse the environment, their work-force and local communities litter your retirement savings. There is no excuse for a badly managed company. You can use your superannuation to improve the behaviour of companies and help ensure a better outcome for your retirement!
