Join us for an exclusive look behind the scenes of a busy Embassy, from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
H.E. Ambassador Heidi Venamore PSM and the Embassy Team, including CPT Stuart Baily, the Australian Defence Attache' to the UAE will speak about how the Embassy works to secure outcomes for the Australian Government, and what happens when the extraordinary occurs.
Including how the 2021 request to evacuate people from Afghanistan became a major consular exercise involving hundreds of government and defence staff from around the world converging on Kabul and the UAE. 4000 people were uplifted from Afghanistan in less than two weeks. Under Chatham House rules, the Ambassador will brief on this topic and other interesting episodes in the life of an Embassy.
