The 2009 Brookes Oration, delivered by Mr Ian McPhee PSM, Auditor-General for Australia, was held on Thursday 27 August in the Arthur Streeton Auditorium at the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins. The topic of his talk was 'The Business of Government: Why Public Sector Management Must Evolve' which drew a large, appreciative audience of University staff, students and alumni, along with corporate and community representatives.
The Brookes Scholars were Mr Craig Stapleton and Ms Patricia Cham, who demonstrated the highest level of academic achievement of all the graduating MBA students in 2008. The Oration was followed by an Alumni cocktail function in the Promenade and a dinner hosted by Mr Roger Brookes at the Melbourne Club.
