The 2022 Minds Count Annu­al Lec­ture will be held on Thurs­day 27 Octo­ber at the Fed­er­al Court of Australia.

Berke­ley Cox is cur­rent­ly a Part­ner in the Bris­bane office of King & Wood Mallesons. Berke­ley served as the Aus­tralian firm’s Chief Exec­u­tive Part­ner from 2017 to 2022 and pri­or to that led the Finan­cial Ser­vices Sec­tor and var­i­ous prac­tice groups.
As Chief Exec­u­tive, Berke­ley’s strat­e­gy focussed deeply on the links between well­be­ing and per­for­mance high­light­ing the impor­tance of cul­ture, team dynam­ics and sup­port from lead­er­ship in fos­ter­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal health and safe­ty in the work­place.

The pro­ceed­ings will be opened by Chief Jus­tice James All­sop, Fed­er­al Court of Aus­tralia who has been instru­men­tal in sup­port­ing the Foundation’s mis­sion since his involve­ment in 2018.
