In 2016 three Hunter Region NSW residents were awarded a prestigious Churchill Fellowship. This award provided them with the extraordinary opportunity to travel overseas as Churchill Fellows to investigate inspiring practices related to their respective projects

The high regard globally for a Churchill Fellowship (established in 1965 to honour the memory of Sir Winston Churchill) provided them with a pathway to access industry groups, practitioners and thought leaders from across the world which allowed them to gain and exchange knowledge and experience and then return to Australia with renewed expertise to make an impact in their respective fields.

This presentation will provide information on how to apply for a Churchill Fellowship with each of the three recipients giving a brief presentation on their respective projects and learnings as well as providing insights into what made their application successful. There will be time allowed for Q&A at the end of the session.
