DICK DUSSELDORP AO

Dusseldorp Forum was established in 1989 by Dick Dusseldorp, the founder of Lend Lease. He created the Forum with the purpose of making a tangible difference to the life chances of young Australians, particularly those who were unable to access educational opportunities that would enable them to shape their own future. It was no accident that he chose the name ‘Forum’. Our purpose, values and principles are informed by his working life philosophy of bringing people together from different perspectives and expertise to focus on common challenges and develop innovative solutions to entrenched problems and barriers.
