Mr Leibler is the senior partner at Arnold Bloch Leibler and head of its renowned taxation practice.

He spoke on the topic of: Two issues that matter to the nation – Good Tax Administration and Constitutional Recognition ofAustralia’s First Peoples

Mr Leibler is a pre-eminent tax lawyer and corporate strategist, having advised many of Australia’smost successful business leaders. Mark is also known and admired for his strong commitment to Jewish affairs, social justice, and Indigenous rights and reconciliation. In 2014, he was named by the Jerusalem Post as one of the 50 most influential Jews in the world. Mark’s service to the nation was recognised in 2005 with his appointment as a Companion of the Order of Australia, in acknowledgment of his service to business, to the law, particularly in the areas of taxation and commercial law, to the Jewish community internationally and in Australia, and to reconciliation and the promotion of understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

In considering the topic for this event, Mr Leibler drew on his diverse background and knowledge-base and prepared a speech vital to a broad business audience. He spoke passionately and compellingly on these two issues, and elicited a range of questions on the topic.

The goal with the event was to bring to Perth a speaker of note, highlighting to the wider community the depth and richness of knowledge and expertise that permeates the Australia Jewish community.Mr Jonathon Silbert, Chair of the Foundation, said of the event “it is our goal, as a community, to share our knowledge and expertise widely, to bring together people from broad backgrounds to discuss topics of common interest and to provide an opportunity for cross-pollination of ideas and networks.”

This inaugural business breakfast event brought together members of the banking, finance, engineering and government sectors. The event was chaired by the Honourable Chief Justice Wayne Martin AC, in one of his last public appearances as Chief Justice. The School and its Foundation is grateful to both speakers for giving of their time for this important event. The School and its Foundation also thanks Gold sponsors NAB, the Schaffer Group of Companies, Threat Project and Jackson McDonald for their support.
