Prior to becoming the member for Wentworth, Dave Sharma spent four years as ambassador of Australia to Israel, navigating the politics and geo-strategic realities of a region as complex and diverse as our own.

In this episode of Defence Connect Insight, Sharma joins hosts Phil Tarrant and Steve Kuper to share his learnings from his time as an ambassador, the similarities between Australia and Israel’s geopolitical circumstances, and his insights into the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  

Sharma explains why it’s important for Australians to become more involved in conversations around national security, what skills incoming diplomats will need moving forward, and why Israel has such a strong tech innovation sector.
