His Excellency the Honourable Chris Dawson APM,

The Dawson family have been part of the early colonial settlers over five generations of farming and law enforcement. Chris Dawson’s great-great-grandparents arrived in the then Swan River colony in Western Australia in the early 1800s.

Chris was educated at Perth Modern School before joining the Western Australia Police Force as a cadet in 1976. Chris joined the Western Australia Police Force in February 1976, going on to provide 46 years of service in Australian law enforcement.

John Wieland
Keynote Speaker 2023

John Wieland grew up in Jerseyville, Illinois USA, one of four children. Whilst his grades at school were mostly average, he did have an affinity with numbers. After he graduated, he pursued a career in accounting, which was instrumental in giving him a good understanding of why some companies were successful and some were not.

This eventually led him to purchase a small, virtually bankrupt company, MH Equipment, which has subsequently grown from having three branches and 50 employees to a company with over 30 branches and 1,000 employees. MH Equipment donates 10% of all profits to charitable organizations totalling over $25 million through the years.
