3 MESSAGE FROM CEO MARK GOLDSTONE It s certainly an exciting time to be in Adelaide. Adelaide is undergoing a renaissance with new major infrastructure, a growing population and rapid increases in entrepreneurial activity. Adelaide City Council is currently finalising its Strategic Plan and has given a very clear message that it wants to grow the number of people that live, work and play here in Adelaide. They also want to deliver great core local government services. Essentially they want to create a smart, liveable and sustainable city. Council are very keen that we achieve this by working collaboratively and trying new and innovative things. We have a great team of dedicated people here at Council who work hard, take great satisfaction in their work, truly care about our city and are proud to say they work at the Adelaide City Council. We are looking for four Directors to join this team who are keen to make a real difference. Working with Council and with me as CEO, the four Directors will provide strategic leadership and oversight of the organisation. These Directors will have great personal integrity with infectious energy and enthusiasm. They will have a proven track record in delivering challenging agendas and a commitment to serving the community. Natural collaborators with good stakeholder management skills are essential. An understanding and experience of how local government operates, while not essential, is certainly advantageous. I invite you to join us in shaping the future and being a bigger part of our amazing city. Adelaide is a City State and the future prosperity of Adelaide is critical to the future of South Australia. As the Capital City Council of South Australia, Adelaide City Council and its senior leadership team have a critically important role to play for the city and the State of South Australia.

He laid out the streets in a grid, surrounded by a ring of what are now State Heritage Listed Park Lands. The City, comprising of the suburbs of Adelaide and North Adelaide, bustles with over a quarter of a million daily visitors; our workers, students attending world acclaimed tertiary institutions and tourists enjoying our many cafes and commercial precincts, museums and galleries. 20 Director Positions Adelaide City Council

INNOVATION The 2012 KPMG Competitiveness Report provides insight into the expenditure of cities around the world on research and development as a percentage of total economic value Gross Domestic Product. From this report, when comparing Greater Adelaide to other cities with similar population size and GDP per capita, Adelaide scores very well. Edmonton (Canada) spends only slightly more on R&D than Adelaide. Whilst the United States of America is known, on a national level, to have high levels of R&D spending, Adelaide spends more on R&D than all the American cities with similar population size. When compared to other Australian mainland capital cities, Adelaide scores the best of all. In fact the differences are stark. Adelaide spends more than twice as much on Research and Development compared to Australia s two biggest Cites, Melbourne and Sydney. The City bustles with over a quarter of a million daily visitors; our workers, students attending world acclaimed tertiary institutions and tourists enjoying our many cafes and commercial precincts, museums and galleries.

22 EDUCATION AND RESEARCH Adelaide has produced Australia s highest number of Nobel Prize winners - three of Australia s 13 and about 100 Rhodes Scholars are former Adelaide alumni. With three lauded public universities (University of Adelaide, University of South Australia and Flinders University), campuses of two leading international universities (Torrens University Australia and Carnegie Mellon) and many private, specialist and training institutions, Adelaide offers great diversity in further education and research. Higher education has long been one of the cornerstones of Adelaide s international appeal and continues to drive growth in the City. There are over 86,000 students in the City and in 2014 over 45,000 of these students were enrolled in City based tertiary institutions. 35% of the population of the City of Adelaide has a bachelor degree or higher, comparative to Sydney (40%) and Perth (37%). Over 30,000 international students predominantly from China, India and South East Asia study in South Australia every year with 23,000 enrolled in City based institutions. University and commercially-based research and development in Adelaide has led international change in the biotechnology, agriculture, winemaking, animal science and information technology fields. These close links have been formed by a strong ethos towards research in the public and private sectors. The South Australian Health and Medical Research Institution has recently opened in the newly forming health and research precinct on North Terrace. This precinct will include in the near future the New Royal Adelaide Hospital and specialist campuses for the University of South Australia and Adelaide University. BUSINESS As the economic powerhouse of the State, the City of Adelaide generates around one fifth of South Australia s Gross State Product: as the Capital City, it is a hub for services and has a core role in defining and driving the economic fortunes of the State. The City Centre s Gross Regional Product (GRP) as at 2014 is $18.25b (19% of the States Gross State Product (GSP)) and contains 15,328 local businesses. Comparatively Sydney s GRP is $101.8b (21% of NSW s GSP) with 63,290 local businesses and Perth s GRP is $30.4b (12% of WA s GSP) with 13,164 local businesses. State Government targets for employment growth expressed in the 30 Year Plan for Greater Adelaide, envisage a further 50,000 City workers by 2040, taking the total from around 118,000 to around 170,000 in the City per day. Recent growth in employment in the Information Media and Telecommunications industry division and the Professional, Scientific and Technical Services industry division is indicative of an increasingly knowledge based City economy. The Business Travel Ranking, undertaken by the Economist Intelligence Unit, assesses and compares cities as potential venues for business trips, conferences and training locations. Adelaide ranked best of all the international Cites included in the comparison in 2008 and has remained competitive in future years. It ranks especially well in comparison with European destinations. Even when compared to destinations in Asia that are generally better connected to international flight services, Adelaide still comes out as the cheapest business travel destination. State Government targets for employment growth expressed in the 30 Year Plan for Greater Adelaide, envisage a further 50,000 City workers by 2040, taking the total from around 118,000 to around 170,000 in the City per day. 22 Director Positions Adelaide City Council
