In October 2012, University of Sydney alumnus John Grill made a $20 million donation to the University. His generous donation has made it possible to establish the John Grill Centre for Project Leadership.
John Grill’s generosity underlines the increasingly critical role played by alumni and other supporters in helping Australia’s higher education sector to maintain and enhance its global competitiveness.
Since graduating from the University, John Grill’s leadership of international resources and energy company WorleyParsons, where he has worked on many of the world’s largest mining and infrastructure projects, has given him the insight and drive to support the establishment of this international centre of excellence in project leadership.
This gift reflects his belief that the University is uniquely placed to provide high-level executive education and thought leadership for multi-billion dollar projects
