What previous sponsors have said about the Debate

"On behalf of the NAB we would like to thank you for such an incredible night last night for the debate. The quality of the event, the engaging conversations and the passion that was in the room to support a more inclusive society was fabulous. Working with the DCA has been a pleasure and we thank you for allowing us to be involved. All the best - and thank you for such a great event!"

"It certainly was a terrific evening and a very thought provoking topic for debate. I was pretty sure at the get go of which side of the argument I was in favour but with each speaker I vacillated from one side of the argument to the other. Both teams did a superb job and great choice of topic on the part of you and your team. MLC Life Insurance was delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor the event and to partner with the DCA." Susan Karson, Chief People Officer, MLC Life Insurance (Major Sponsor 2019)
