In Episode 86, “A Future for All,” Blenheim Partners’ Gregory Robinson speaks to Tony Stuart, Chief Executive Officer of UNICEF Australia.

In an eye-opening discussion, Tony shares with us the sobering reality children from the most disadvantaged and marginalised sectors in Australia and around the world face; the threats to their safety as they grow up in a society rife with conflict and disasters. He also sheds a light on UNICEF’s efforts to keep children safe, provide education, nutrition and health care as well as to support their long-term development and wellbeing.

Tony also currently serves as Chair of the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission Advisory Board and is a member of the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnership. Previously, Tony was the CEO of the National Roads and Motorists’ Association and Sydney Airports Corporation. He also recently chaired the Not-for-Profit Advisory Board to the National COVID-19 Commission, was a founding Director of the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals, and a former Director of the Heart Research Institute of Australia and the Starlight Children’s Foundation National Board.

While Australia remains one of the richest countries in the world, some 3 million people, including more than 731,000 children are living in poverty. To find out more about UNICEF Australia and to support this most worthwhile of causes, please visit
