Senator Jim Molan AO, DSC
Jim Molan is a highly decorated and now retired Australian Army Major General who served his country for 40 years. Jim has given in so many ways as an infantryman, a helicopter pilot, Commander of army units up to a division of 15,000 soldiers, commander of the Australian Defence Colleges and of the evacuation force from the Solomon Islands. Jim was deployed to Iraq as Coalition’s Chief of Operations, during a period of continuous and intense combat.
Beyond his time in the military, Jim has been called upon as an expert commentator on defence and security issues by the media and in a number of journals and blogs.

Jim is able to convey the need for leadership, strategy and calm under pressure, and we could all benefit from a lesson like that.
