Walkley Award winning author, journalist and documentary-maker George Megalogenis is joining the National Housing Conference 2017 as a keynote speaker to close out the first day of the program.

With more than three decades’ experience in the Australian media, including 11 years in the Canberra Press Gallery, George brings a wealth of knowledge on big-picture global economic and political trends and will apply that expertise to the housing sector at the Conference.

George is a deeply insightful speaker and his big-picture exploration of economic, political and cultural trends is sure to engage delegates.
