The Rev Tim Costello is one of Australia’s most respected community leaders and a sought-after voice on social justice issues, leadership and ethics.

For 13 years until October 2016, Tim was Chief Executive of World Vision Australia, and up until earlier this year, he was World Vision’s Chief Advocate.

In his evocative memoir that has just been released – A Lot with a Little, Tim explores the people and experiences that have shaped him into a fighter for the world’s most challenging issues.

Speaking at the Festival of Open Minds last Saturday (September 14) Tim called on us to find unity in these challenging times and reminded us of the strength in compassion and hope, and the responsibility we all have to see justice served.
