Dr Brendan Nelson AO’s role as director of the Australian War Memorial is one of great responsibility, reflecting on the lives lived and lost during Australia’s time at war.

Dr Brendan Nelson AO’s role as director of the Australian War Memorial is one of great responsibility, reflecting on the lives lived and lost during Australia’s time at war. It is a role where Dr Nelson reveals he showcases stories in the context of war, which are so often not about war itself but a celebration of the Australian spirit.

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Dr Nelson joins host Phil Tarrant to reflect on his time before his current director role, including his tenure as Australia’s ambassador to NATO in Brussels, and share the plans for the development of the Australian War Memorial, with almost $500 million to be invested in the centre in the coming nine years.

Finally, he will discuss the opening of the Afghanistan exhibition and the shift towards greater defence industry involvement in the memorial.
