Adams played a key role in the establishment of many important bodies including the Australia Council and the Australian Film Commission. Descibed by Robert Manne as "the most remarkable broadcaster in the history of this country", his Late Night Live is Australiaâs most successful "podcast". Heâs chaired Film Australia, the Australian Film Institute, the Commission for the Future and the National Australia Day Council - and chairs the advisory board of the Centre for the Mind at Sydney University and The Australian Centre for Social Innovation. His honours include two Orders of Australia, the Human Rights Medal and four Honorary Doctorates.
