Melbourne, VIC – RMIT Golden Key President Xiyi Wang is proud to announce the induction of our special guest – Mr Alex Malley as an honorary member of the Golden Key International Honour Society. The accolade will be presented at Storey Hall on 7th October at the 2015 RMIT Annual New Member Reception.

Golden Key is the world’s largest collegiate honour society. Membership into the Society is by invitation only and applies to the top 15% performing students, based solely on their academic achievements. The RMIT Chapter has successfully followed this tradition with its membership numbers reaching 14,000 since it was established in 1993.

Alex Malley is the current Chief Executive of CPA Australia and head of its financial services subsidiary, CPA Australia Advice. CPA Australia is a multinational organisation with 19 offices worldwide and over 150,000 members in 120 countries.

Golden Key awards honorary membership to exceptional individuals in the community. Alex Malley was selected because of his dedication to the industry and outstanding achievement in academia, leadership and community service which align with pillars of the Golden Key. He joins a global network of members including Olympic Gold Medallist Ian Thorpe and His Excellency General The Hon. Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), current Governor-General of Australia.

With his recent success in the bestselling book – ‘The Naked CEO’, and highly popular online mentoring community –, Alex shares his own life experiences and provides aspiring leaders with a guidance platform.

“As a chief executive, former academic and father, I have committed my life to encouraging and nurturing the best that a young person can be. I deeply believe there is a leader in all of us, provided we are willing to chase passion and dreams”, says Alex.

He was also invited to become a LinkedIn Influencer; one of an exclusive group of global leaders joining Sir Richard Branson, Bill Gates and US President Barack Obama.

As the host of national TV series -‘The Bottom Line’, Alex frequently sheds light on leadership issues in interviews with fellow business and political leaders, benefiting the wider Australian community.

“I have admired the work of the Golden Key Society for many years now and look forward to working with it to further enhance the future for young people. It is a great, personal privilege to be offered honorary membership and I will use it to continue my work in helping develop the next generation of leaders.”

RMIT Golden Key is equally excited with the prospect of working in partnership with Alex in future.

At the reception, Alex will deliver the keynote address and be awarded with his Golden Key Honorary Member Certificate.

New members, please RSVP by Sunday 20 September to secure your place for this memorable occasion.
