QUT Business Leaders Forum - Sam Walsh, former CEO Rio Tinto

Wednesday 24 May 2017














Sam Walsh AO
Former Chief Executive, Rio Tinto

Sam Walsh was Chief Executive of one of the world’s largest minerals and mining corporations, Rio Tinto, until July 2016. He steered the business through a torrid industry downturn and positioned the company for solid growth. Building a reputation for “getting things done”, Sam was recognised for his strategic expertise and courageous leadership over a 25 year career with Rio Tinto and 20 years in senior leadership roles with General Motors and Nissan Australia. He was a member of the B20 Australian Leadership Group and co-chair of the Australia India CEO Forum, receiving an Order of Australia in 2010.

Sam Walsh will speak to his remarkable journey, his own “leadership metamorphosis” as RioTinto CEO, and the leadership required to drive sustainable change and create a true sense of energy and purpose in our organisations.

We again welcome, as Moderator, one of Australia’s leading journalists, Kerry O’Brien.
