GLF Connect Alumni - Community Impact

Who's with me?

Making a positive impact on our community

The inspiration for 'Who's with Me?' was recognising the collective power of past GLFers as a valuable potential resource to contribute to making South Australia a better place.  And this annual event is designed to put this theory into action!

Here’s how it works: a GLFer has six minutes to pitch an idea. At the end of the pitch they make an appeal to their fellow Alumni, “Who’s with me?”

If there’s an idea, project or potential initiative pitched that captures your imagination and you’d like to contribute, you can register your interest with the 'pitcher'

Couldn't make the live event on 8 May? That is ok! You can still 'answer the call'!
