The Western Australian Frank and Fearless Legendary Debate

Debate Topic: “It’s a Good Time to be a Public Servant!”

Member Events - 27 Aug 2015

Do you think it’s a good time to be a public servant? 

Do you believe that we can solve all the world’s problems if only we work together, or is it all a pointless talkfest? 

No matter what your view, we hope you didn't miss the epic battle of the first ever Western Australian Frank and Fearless Legendary Debate!

Feisty Team Frank, led by Landgate’s General Manager Jodi Cant, fought it out against intrepid Team Fearless, led by the Department of Agriculture and Food’s Director General Rob Delane. 

Both team leaders marshalled their courageous forces of Young Professional debaters to convince you that their argument is the only valid one.

Hosted by WA’s very own infamous Famous Sharron, (freshly returned from a successful run at this year’s Melbourne Comedy Festival), this was an unforgettable evening of cutting stakeholder engagement and unbridled policy advice. 

Congratulations to Team Frank, who won the ever reliable, audience vote!
