The Peter Cullen Trust offers a rich calendar of local, state and national, online and face to face events, that support the development and growth of Fellows and supporters of the Trust.  A small number of events – including the Leadership Program Graduations and the Annual Peter Cullen Lecture – are open to interested members of the wider water and environment sector.  


Our Leadership Program Graduations take place on the last evening of each program, typically in May and November each year.  They provide the opportunity to connect, reconnect and network with others from the water sector in Australia; to hear from inspiring keynote speakers; and to celebrate the Leadership Program graduates who have completed a life-changing journey of self-discovery and transformative leadership practice.

The annual Peter Cullen Lecture, delivered in partnership with the University of Canberra and Griffith University, profiles an inspiring speaker from within the sector who addresses critical issues facing water and environmental management in our region.  Held in November, the Lecture is an importnat event which attracts researchers, academics, practitioners, policy makers, politicians and water and environment professionals. 


As part of its charter, the Peter Cullen Trust convenes conversations of significance and relevance to water management today – bringing stakeholders together from across jurisdictions, spheres of government, communities and political ideologies.  These are ‘invitation only’ events, run in the trusted framework of the Peter Cullen philosophy, and candidly articulating issues that are not addressed elsewhere. Details of upcoming conversations are shared here, but these events are open only to Fellows and other members of the Trust’s network, by invitation.


The Trust’s twice-yearly Graduation Week program provides opportunities for professional development, recognition, reconnection and celebration for the Fellows and Friends of the Peter Cullen Trust.  The upcoming Graduation Week program is available HERE.
