Ms Harriet Elvin

GDip Int Law 1986, MBA 1997, GDip Art Hist 2006

For me, fulfilment in my career means aligning my professional work with my personal values and interests. The time we devote to our careers occupies so much of our lives that I believe we should spend it pursuing those things we hold most dear.

Ms Amanda Harkness

BEc (Hons) 1978, LLB (Hons) 1981

Strive to make the complex simple. Dig deep to find the real concerns of all stakeholders, and identify the common ground on which to build outcomes that mean many can share in the achievement. Always enjoy what you do and look for opportunities to renew.

Mr Alastair Holberton

BEc 1970

Originate the idea, solve the problems, manage the people, quality is everything. Give trust, honour obligations, work to peoples’ strengths while understanding their weakness... There is little which cannot be achieved.

Mr Greg MacLeod

BEc 1982, LLB 1985

A key part of corporate restructuring is providing calm where others have lost their heads. Analysis is necessary but in a fast moving situation, critical decisions must be made correctly often with incomplete information.

Mr Jesse T H Chang

Bachelor of Economics 1977, Bachelor of Laws 1980

Dedication and hard work will overcome your shortcomings and, in turn, generate happiness!

Ms Naomi Flutter

Bachelor of Laws (Hons) 1995, Bachelor of Economics (Hons) 1995, Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice 1996

This world demands the qualities of youth; not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the life of ease.

— Robert F Kennedy

Professor Simon Grant

Bachelor of Science 1986, Bachelor of Economics (Hons) 1986

The most important advice I received was from one of my ANU professors who told me to have confidence in my own judgement and to understand that for the most significant decisions you make, you should strive to be true to yourself rather than pander to the wishes and expectations of others.

Professor George J. Mailath

Bachelor of Economics (Hons) 1980

As an academic, my aim is to work on research that is both significant and intellectually stimulating. Significant research advances economics as a science; there are important open questions, and as a social science, economics affects peoples lives.  I also want my students to do the same, and so I constantly challenge them to do the best work that they can.
