ACPET are delighted to announce that Ian has confirmed o be a Keynote Speaker at the 2017 ACPET National Conference in Brisbane.

There is no-one more fitting to address delegates on contestability in higher tertiary education and training. When it comes to understanding the importance of student/ consumer choice to support an industry, Professor Ian Harper is the expert.

Delegates will benefit greatly from Ian’s wealth of experience and knowledge, as recently as 2015, Ian chaired the Competition Policy Review, a root and branch’ review of Australia’s competition policy, laws and regulators.

Ian has not been awarded these opportunities through sheer luck or chance, he spent 16 years in various roles at the Melbourne business School and was elected Emeritus Professor of the University of Melbourne, he served as the inaugural Chairman of the Australia Fair Pay Commission, partnered with Deloitte Access Economics and played a vital role in a review of Victoria’s state finances in 2012.    

In the contemporary education market where access to funding and opportunities for students is dramatically shifting, there is a no more timely occasion to call on the wisdom and insight of Professor Ian Harper.
