One of Melbourne’s most respected legal authorities David Galbally QC has a profile amongst the legal fraternity, and the wider community, that is second to none.
David is regularly called upon by Channel’s 7, 9 and 10, as well as top rating radio programs, to provide comment and expert opinion across a broad range of topics ranging from corporate governance, workplace relations, human rights, privacy and superannuation regulation.
Galbally has been referred to as “A shaper of opinion, thought and events”.
A foremost expert on corporate and criminal law, Galbally has represented some of Australia’s largest sporting governing bodies, sporting clubs and identities, public superannuation funds, as well as high profile individuals.
Outside of Law, David sits on the board of a publicly listed clean energy company, is President of Alzheimer’s Australia Vic and Chairman of the Centre for Hormone Research at the Children’s Hospital. David is also the Chairman of an Industry Superannuation Fund. His involvement with this Fund has required him to have a clear understanding of corporate governance and risk management issues as well as the need to work effectively and comply with regulatory authorities such as ASIC and APRA.
David has over the years become highly sought after as an authority on the issue of corporate governance and risk management and has worked with many of Australia’s largest corporations.
He is an excellent keynote or conference speaker; or for that change of format, an outstanding hypothetical or forum facilitator.
The event went off extremely well. It flowed well, all participants were briefed and the rapport was excellent. As a delegate on the floor and knowing the subject very well, I could not fau ... keep readinglt the whole event. I am very happy to recommend David to act as a moderator for a similar event any time. Victorian Transport Association
Not only did you get your message across on ‘The Chain of Responsibility’ but you have continued to ensure that the Managers are discussing the topic. I am so pleased with the result that I have requested that another Hypothetical be arranged for our next meeting in September and have plans to involve our customers so they are able to better understand their responsibilities.
David’s entertaining and thought-provoking hypothetical assisted partners to confront and respond to the issues facing professional services firms in an era of unprecedented change. The feedback from participants, and from the audience at our Australian Partners’ Conference 2002, was strong - we’re looking forward to working with David again in the future.
A short note to say how pleased I was with last Friday’s session - and moreover to say what outstanding feedback I’ve had from my fellow Partners… I think it was great insight into just some of the contemporary issues in Boardroom’s…
I just wanted to send you a wee note to thank you so much for the great speech last night at the ACLA dinner. Your speech was both entertaining and thought provoking, and generated a great deal of post-speech discussion over dinner. I would highly recommend you to other organisations to speak at formal events.
David's talk was entertaining and interesting. He captured and held the audience's attention very well.
