Co-Operation: Bill Clinton’s Speech At The Launch Of Torrens University Australia

Former US President Bill Clinton has delivered a speech on the importance of co-operation at the launch of Torrens University Australia in Adelaide.


Clinton again paid tribute to the work of the Australian government in the aftermath of the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, particularly the work of Foreign Minister Julie Bishop in co-operation with Dutch Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans.

The former president talked about the work of his Clinton Foundation. He referred to work which showed that the most successful species are ants, termites, bees and people, the only creatures that co-operate in the work they do.

“We know that networks of co-operation work better than geniuses working alone,” Clinton said.

Unlike most speeches by political figures, Clinton shows how it is done: substantive and interesting, whilst laced with self-deprecating humour and delivered in language free of robotic sludge.
