Brookes Oration

The Brookes Oration was established in 2006 by the Deakin Graduate School of Business to encourage thoughtful debate about the contribution of corporate Australia in the global community.

The oration and the medal honour Sir Wilfred Brookes, grandson of Alfred Deakin, second Prime Minister of Australia, for whom Deakin University is named. Sir Wilfred continued the family's association with the University as Chairman of the Deakin University Foundation.

In 1981 Sir Wilfred honoured us by giving an address to the first MBA class on 21 March.
