So humbled to have received the award. I spent some time reading the bios of all of the other nominees and just so thoroughly impressed by what some of the wonderful people of which there's around table here you guys are doing, because it takes a lot of people to do a lot of great things. I'd like to thank Snowdome Foundation for nominating me. And I'd also like to thank myleoma Australia. WEHI, and also Peter Mac. It's an honour to be able to represent those organisations and do work with them in the great work of trying to keep people alive.

I just like to start by firstly saying that thanking the organisers and the other charities that are here representing tonight and the social sector for the incredible thing they bring to society. I reflected on this a few times, and it's what the not for profit sector brings to society actually makes the society worth being. And I just congratulate that others have performed at night on the various things everyone brings to this sector.

What an honour to hear this amazing news. Thank you. And what's equally exciting is the program celebrates ten years this year, ten years of getting young professionals onto aged care and community boards in our sector, the third sector. And while I'm speaking of the third sector, I want to thank you very much for supporting this award and also to Australian ethical.
