In the second talk for the 2016 Game Changers series, hear from Bruce Wolfe, Managing Director of Conrad Gargett, and a highly respected architect who has worked on some of Queensland’s largest and most innovative building projects and is president of the Queensland Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects.
For the past seven years Bruce has led the masterplanning, design and delivery team on the recently completed $1.4B Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital. As a public building this facility enshrines some of Bruce’s principal design concerns, connection to community, inviting and experiential architecture and an integration between art and place. In 2013 this project won the International Academy of Design and Health Award for best future Hospital.
He has recently led the Master Plan team for the $2.5 billion Sunshine Coast University Hospital and undertaken commissions for University and Defence Campuses throughout Queensland.

What does sport do for Queensland?
As we dust off our maroon flags for sport’s greatest rivalry, the State of Origin, we invite you to join us to discuss the role sport plays in creating our sense of belonging. Our Queenslanders in conversation talk series continues to explore our individual and collective identities and our sense of belonging to family, communities, and our state.
In June, our panellists will explore the effect of team rivalries here and interstate; the part sport plays in our identity and history; and if our sporting organisations are doing enough to create a sense of community through sport among our diverse communities.
Meet the members of the panel:
Paul is CEO of the most successful club in the history of the NRL, the Brisbane Broncos.
He has extensive business experience, particularly in the resources industry, and as a consequence knows and loves the bush. Paul was a bit of a league legend himself – being named in the Queensland Police Team of the Century alongside Mal Meninga no less!
