An eclectic compilation of pieces by leaders, role models, influencers and thinkers from diverse backgrounds,. generally directed to younger people who are embarking on 'public life', or who may do so in future.

It focuses on the knowledge, skills and qualities needed for success in public life. The objective is to contribute to the formation, over time, of better 'civic dialogue' in this country. Contributors are 36 successful Australians who share the view that it is possible to achieve a national conversation that is kinder and gentler, more rational and competent.

They include two former Premiers, the former most senior Commonwealth public servant, two currently-serving federal politicians, a number of people who have held CEO positions in the public, non-profit and private sectors, and other leaders, role models, thinkers, advisers, advocates and observers from diverse backgrounds.
