Australian Lebanese Foundation

Promoting strengthened bonds between the peoples of Australia and Lebanon and the advancement of the Australian Lebanese community. We do this by supporting cultural exchange, fostering academic and student exchange between The University of Sydney and the Lebanese University, and by providing university scholarships and other forms of support to Australians of Lebanese heritage so that they can enrich their lives through education.

The Foundation welcomes interested members of the community to join them in these endeavours.


FREE PUBLIC LECTURE BY MR CARLOS GHOSN, Thursday 8th June, 5:30-6:30pm

Carlos Ghosn

Carlos Ghosn is one of the world's most influential business leaders and was the first executive to run two Fortune Global 500 companies simultaneously.
He is Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, one of the world's largest automotive groups. Mr Ghosn is also Chairman and CEO of France's Groupe Renault, and serves as chairman of Japan's Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp.

In addition, Mr Ghosn oversees the Alliance's majority interest in the join venture that controls AVTOVAZ, Russia's largest automaker. The Alliance companies together sold 9.96 million vehicles in 2016 - more than one in nine sold worldwide.
Mr Ghossan has been the industry's leading advocate for sustainable transportation: Renault and Nissan were the first automakers to launch a range of affordable zero-emission vehicles. He is also leading the Alliance's pioneering effort to develop autonomous-drive and connected-car technologies.

In partnership with the University of Sydney Business School and Sydney Ideas the ALF invites you to join us for an interactive session to hear from Carlos on the future of the automotive industry, the importance of innovation in business, and what it takes to be a truly global leader.
