Quigley’s big stand: the full speech

By John Nixon 19/08/2010


Mike Quigley had retired from an exemplary career in the telecoms field.

He had succeeded in beating first Leukaemia, then a brain tumor years later and completed a 30 year brilliant career with Alcatel-Lucent in the US, France etc.

Then he was coaxed back to lead the new NBN Co in Australia as their CEO.

After accepting this challenging position, he immediately donated his first year’s  salary (A$1.5M) to medical research.

Mike made an impelling and fascinating speech concerning the Australian NBN and NGN’s in general. I warmly recommend you read the transcript:

Quigley wins over the true believers.
