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 intended to put this theory into action!

Here’s how it works: a GLFer will have six minutes to pitch an idea. At the end of the pitch they’ll 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'!

Want to make a pitch? Find out how below.

Drinks and nibbles provided. Pernod Ricard Winemakers encourage you to enjoy their products responsibly.

When: 8 May 2024
Time: 5:30 - 7:30pm
Where: William Buck | Level 7, 211 Victoria Square
Cost: Free

  • Paul Mayers, FGLF 2020  who sought alumni to come to a meeting and help communicate around the Voice to Parliament to ensure people make informed decisions. Danielle James FGLF 2020 spoke from the heart on what the Voice to Parliament means to her and her deep reflection around this issue. Paul drew together people interested in raising awareness and understanding the Voice to Parliament and providing accurate information for this vote of a lifetime. Paul went on to develop an in-person and online presentation based on this work – delivered multiple times and reaching several hundred people.
  • Greg Knagge, FGLF 2019 who sought support for a GLF Connect Scholarship. Greg wanted to harness the collect power of GLF alumni to create ongoing and sustainable giving towards GLF scholarships. The ultimate pay-it-forward move. The GLF Connect Scholarship is now established.
  • Lesley Marchioro FGLF 2017, Peta-Marie Matschoss FGLF 2019 and Cathie Brown, CEO Leaders Institute  who sought Alumni to be project mentors for the Youth Governor’s Leadership Foundation program. Lesley and Peta-Marie spoke about their experience as mentors in 2022 and the wealth of learning and personal growth they gain from supporting leaders of the future. The target number of mentors was achieved and we have strong pool of mentors for 2024 as well!
