Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair will visit Perth this year as part of a national speaking tour.
Mr Blair, who was Prime Minister from 1997 to 2007 will share 'unique insights and experiences in leadership, negotiation and innovation' when he visits Perth, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Auckland in July.
According to Anthony Pratt, Chairman and CEO of Visy, Tony Blair’s visit will be a unique opportunity to hear from one of the world’s most admired leaders. "I first met Tony Blair in 2006 and we share a common interest in finding solutions to the challenges of climate change that bring business, Government, and the environmental community together. I also admire the role he is playing as an international statesman. So I'm delighted that Australian audiences will be able to hear from him in person."
Mr Blair’s memoir, “A Journey: My Political Life” was released in September 2010 and made the New York Times Best-seller List within a week of its release.
