Philip Skelton

Phillip Skelton has enjoyed three careers: - in the Regular Army for 28 years; as a senior public servant for 16 years; and an independent telecommunications and broadcasting consultant for 8 years.

His voluntary community service brings him much satisfaction.  He has been a Director of such diverse organisations as a School Foundation, a Music Foundation, a Marriage and Family Counselling organization, and a television station.  He has been Patron of three Police Recruit Squads.

He maintains an active interest in national security and defence issues and in commemoration of Defence Force members who gave their lives in securing Australia’s interests.  He was Deputy Warden of the State War Memorial for 7 years.

Phillip is a Past President of the Rotary Club of Perth.  He is a Past District Governor of District 9455, and now a Board member of Armadale Rotary in District 9465.

For someone who has spent his life leading, working, and volunteering with people it is remarkable that top of his bucket list was to see the only continent with zero permanent residents!  He is here to tell us about his fascinating expedition to Antarctica in 2017.
