Past Events


Julian Burton OAM


After suffering life threatening burn injuries in the Bali Bombings of 2002, Julian Burton OAM was inspired to establish the Julian Burton 

Burns Trust.

The Julian Burton Burns Trust has become Australia’s first ever community organization to be established to commit to the prevention, care and research associated with burn injury where he closely works with burn units across Australia and New Zealand.

In 2006 Julian was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for his contribution to the community through the work of the Julian Burton Burns Trust across Australia.  In 2010 his efforts were recognised when he was a finalist for the Australian of the Year Award and was named South Australian of the Year.

Julian will draw on his experiences as a sportsperson, a consumer of the health system and a manager of a health organisation to talk about challenges in the workplace.
