Jeff Kennett has, in his own words, led a privileged and varied life. From military service to running his own business; former Premier of Victoria to former President of Hawthorn Football Club; founding and current Chairman of the national depression initiative beyondblue. Through this success he has been guided by simple values, good governance and the quality of the team around him. This is a collection of Jeff's best and most-loved weekly columns for the Herald Sun newspaper. They are his unedited and uninhibited views as an individual who would best describe himself as economically conservative and socially liberal; covering hot button topics including: the Essendon illicit drug scandal; the 2016 Australian Federal Election; economic musings post- GFC; and the Victorian Dairy Farmers dilemma. Kennett: Insights & Reflections spans issues and events 2014 -- 2017. Leadership of conviction & courage. Not always loved. Still needed.
