Q&A: Rebuilding a Reputation Michael Clarke, former Australian Cricket Captain
Local government is not alone when it comes to being under the glare of the national spotlight, or unique in suffering from damage to its reputation when things go wrong.
Former Australian Captain, Michael Clarke will speak on what local government can learn from the Australian ball tampering cricket scandal that led to the resignation of the coach and the suspension of the captain and vice-captain.
In a country where fair play is a cornerstone of our values - how will Australian cricket rebuild its shattered reputation on the world stage? What can we, as local government, learn from their approach?
Michael Clarke was the 43rd test captain of Australia, and is widely known as one of the best batsmen of all time. He was anointed the Australian captaincy in 2011, and in less than 18 months under his leadership he took the team from number five in the world, to number one.
He retired in 2015, and remains closely aligned to Australian cricket through his work as a commentator on the sport and the development of younger cricketers through the Michael Clarke Cricket Academy.
