Our Guest today is Belle Lim, the current President of the Council of International Students Australia.  Belle is undertaking a Doctorate studying cancer genomics, working part time (as just about all of our International students do!) AND undertaking advocacy work and policy advice on behalf of the 700,000 students from all over the world who choose to study in Australia.  Supremely capable and organised, Belle has some very considered opinions about the current state of the 'education industry' in Australia, and how the students that form her constituency now view Australia, in light of the response to students and other temporary residents, as the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns gripped Australia. There are some confronting messages for Australia - the policy makers and beneficiaries of the education economy - and the wider community.  "We" could benefit from some serious self-reflection as we slowly return to 'Covid normal', as we may have caused ourselves seriou, ongoing damage. If you want to follow Belle in her endeavours, you can find her on LinkedIn. Here's a helpful link. If you are an International student and need advice, assistance or advocacy from CISA, or you just want to understand your rights - start with this page of the CISA website.

At the height of the Covid lockdown, as a Melbourne winter was taking hold, a sympathetic restaurant owner took it upon himself to feed the hoards of International students who found themselves trapped in the city. David Bongiorno and I meet Alan Chong, and hear the story. Alan runs Tian 38 and used his kitchen to dispense up to 700 meals a day for people who really needed a hand at a very difficult time.

Year after year, no matter where you are in Australia, it is proved over and over why insurance is something you need to consider. It can be a natural disaster, or just an accident or mishap that can befall on anyone, but insurance helps people carry on with life after misfortune, but it's a complex area, especially for business. SO, we talked to an expert, Lyndon Holland from CBD Insurance to help you get a grip on a difficult subject. You can find Lyndon on LinkedIn here if you need information about insurance.
