Advance, the network for the one million Australians living overseas, has appointed a new global chairman and a chief executive for Australia as it moves to build its profile and step up engagement with the 2.5 million non-Australians who have studied in Australia.

They are highly educated and although little known in Australia, many are “keen to give back” she says.
