Keynote Speaker Announcement: Dr. Maithri Goonetilleke

We're beyond excited to announce our first keynote speaker for Change X Unzipped in 2017: 

Dr. Maithri Goonetilleke

As the founder of the NGO Possible Dreams International (PDI), Dr Goonetilleke spent a large part of the last ten years working in rural parts of Swaziland, Southern Africa. The work of PDI involves delivering medical services and poverty alleviation programs to remote, HIV/AIDS affected areas of Swaziland.

In Australia he has worked in a variety of roles including medical and emergency registrar positions in tertiary hospitals, running sole-doctor emergency departments in rural areas, working in indigenous communities and is currently the chief medical officer at Fulham Correctional Centre. As a medical educator, Maithri teaches and lectures in the Medical Faculty at Monash University.
