Wave of Change Ambassadors

The New Liberals aim, not only to heal the crises created by the political class in this country, but to change the very political culture itself. We are creating a wave of change which will sweep across the nation and wash away the professional politicians, with their self-serving ‘power for us, power at any cost’ philosophy. We will replace them with real people from the real world who care about their country.

Here are our Wave of Change Ambassadors:

Jim Kable

Teaching of History and of English&TESOL in rural and metropolitan NSW – in Spain, Germany and in Japan. Concern for equity and social justice – for honest/transparent accountability of politicians – the rights of Indigenous Australians to be paramount – the rights of asylum-seekers to be fair dinkum guaranteed and beyond the politicisation of current times.

I want to see an end to vested-interest corporate secrecy – the overturn of any so-called Free Trade Agreements and a return to free and fully-funded secular public education and a return to the best of public health – and an ending to our tax dollars being given to US WMD shareholders! I want the environment to be protected from “crooks”/overseas interests such as Rinehart and Shenhua and Adani and the CSG nightmare.

I want all US Forces and spy installations removed from Australian soil and I want our government to sign the ICAN UN-supported proposal against the development, possession or possible use of nuclear weapons.

I believe we are mirrors to our world (our manner behaviour makes the agenda) and that we are indeed all connected no matter our superficial if at the same time very important cultural differences. There is no them and us – only us!

Dr Michael Gliksman

Dr Michael Gliksman BMed(Hons), LLB, MPH, PHD, FAFOEM & FAFPHM(RACP), FRS(Med), is a physician practising in Sydney and Ballina (NSW). He is past Vice President and Chair of Council of the AMA(NSW), and past Federal Councillor of the AMA. He has been a NH&MRC Research Fellow, a Visiting Research Fellow at the Channing Laboratory, Harvard Medical School, and Physician at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.

He is a founding member of Council of Doctors For Refugees and a medical advisor for the Cambodian Children’s Trust.

He has never been a member of a major political party but counted himself a true believer, until he concluded Labor no longer retained a commitment to policies worth believing in. Committed to principles of integrity, equity and responsibility in politics, and tired of internecine political fights that detract from policy and performance, he resigned from the Greens to join The New Liberals.

Lisa Short

I work alongside world state authorities like the UN, international and national governments and businesses and am described as a transformational strategist.  I convene stakeholders and ecosystems, and lead actions that execute deliverable systemic change initiatives to some of the world’s greatest challenges and ones that are crucial for the Australian and global economy to deliver economic growth, accelerated potential from frontier technologies and social impact. I am also proudly a daughter, a mum, a friend, from regional Australia and known as an innovator, entrepreneur, digital technologist, academic, advisor, mentor, role model, ambassador of change and special #CryptoAunty to the blockchain community.

Challenging the state of play and disrupting the norm whilst pragmatically embracing the rapidly advancing potential of frontier technology keeps me at the forefront of pioneering positive change with people as the focus. Big challenges require big solutions and never be afraid to deliver them is the mantra that drives me forward. 

At the United Nations, the 17th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates in Mérida and at the Kairos EU Summit in Venice in 2019, as a global influencer, I delivered education sessions and led change manifestos grounded in my belief of areté entrepreneurship and business performance. This means excellence of any kind, bound with the notion of the fulfillment of purpose or function and the act of living up to one’s full potential. I witnessed the international community embrace such forward-thinking initiatives, technology, inclusion, peace and social progression towards the SDG’s and harmonious life on our planet.  People from all walks of life require community, environment, capacity and the skills that enables freedom of passage throughout the world they live and work in. In the current political, economic and social climate in Australia this is not possible and like Victor Kline I am ‘madder than hell about it”. It must change!

As the Founder of Mind Shifting, it seems a natural progression for me to advocate new paradigms in politics and elected decision makers to those with competence, acumen, integrity and who genuinely care about the people of this country. I am uncompromising in attainment of gender parity; support for SME’s and farmers; high quality education and reform of the vocational sector; innovation and venture creation; new frameworks to respect and support ageing; a just and fair legal system; and the elimination and accountability of bureaucratic and unconscionable behaviour of Government institutional bullies that are crippling and hurting good people and business.

Alex Tewes

Born in Argentina, from where he arrived in 1973 when his parents fled the chaos of what became known as the “Dirty War”. “I was fifteen years old when we migrated to Australia, and I had lived through fifteen coups d’état” he said.

Alex has served in the Australian Army and Tasmania Police Force, and later as a senior officer of both the Department of Defence and Australian Parliament, as the Director of Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade in the Parliamentary Research Branch. He is a skilled strategist, policy advisor, and company director.

He thinks that his early exposure to a failed democracy made clear on his mind the critical need for Australia to have a government that shows strong ethical behaviour, uniform and clear accountability, and that treats all people with dignity. “It is disheartening that at this time of national crisis, the current government is mired in corruption and appears to govern secretly and just for their donors. We need to do better” he said. He believes that The New Liberals offer a path toward a new model of politics that reflects the best of our common character in an era of global climate change.
