Australia Day : Let’s CelebrateJanuary 26, 2013
On the day that we officially recognise the birth of Australia as a modern national entity, we can be proud to acknowledge some of the Australians who have carried the name of Australia to the world.
Whether an individual appointed manager of the New Yorker magazine at the age of 26, a company providing technology to the triple world championship winning Red Bull Formula One Grand Prix team, or a new supercomputer running the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator (ACCESS), the Australia Unlimited website and app celebrate people and organisations which showcase Australia’s natural resources: resilience, creativity and an unquenchable desire to succeed, no matter what the challenge.
At the heart of the Australia Unlimited concept is the idea that Australia’s development has been forged through its enterprising spirit, natural optimism and sense of untold potential.
As a nation, we should also recognise the vast human resource of millenia of experience and culture
of our first nation people. We should be celebrating the art, technology, culture and contributions of Aboriginal Australians and looking forward to a shared future with respect and support.
As an individual, I passionately feel that we should be offering every opportunity in health, education and career growth, and promoting role models of those first Australians who have succeeded in academia, business, entertainment, law, medicine, politics, and so may other sectors.
Activities today will offer boundless community and individual opportunities to participate in the celebrations. On Monday, (when many corporations give their employees a day off ‘in lieu of’ the public holiday), Australians across the country and around the world will be working to promote their particular skills and capabilities for their international clientele.
National pride can be a positive thing, when based in a non-discriminatory, inclusive philosophy. Nationalism for the sake of belonging to a group and aggressively excluding others who do not copy your fervent flag-waving, is a negative. Growth in the former and reduction of the latter can only be good for our country.
Australia Unlimited is a part of the Australian government’s Building Brand Australia initiative.

You are a true professional Andrew, and your team was very impressive.
The results will be seen around the globe shortly as we embark on our new advertising campaign. I do greatly appreciate the extra lengths you went to under difficult circumstances, to help us achieve our goal.
