Professor Alan Duncan, BCEC’s Director, has been awarded the prestigious 2018 award for the Most Prolific Media Commentator across Curtin University’s Faculty of Business and Law. The award recognises Alan’s outstanding contribution to media engagement for the Centre, the Faculty of Business and Law, and Curtin University.

Alan has appeared regularly on TV, radio and in print media over the course of the year, providing expert commentary and analysis across a host of topics relating to public policy, educational
