This is Australia's Ideas Central. The place where highly intelligent, articulate and public-minded people use their skills to attempt – often successfully – to influence the public debate and policy outcomes. Some are academics, some are philanthropists, some are public thinkers. What they have in common is high prominence on the public stage of ideas and the ability to be taken seriously by other powerful people. A kind of knock-on power and influence.
