MP Angus Taylor: the man touted as a future Prime Minister will be guest speaker at a business luncheon at Wests Leagues on November 18.

Hume MP Angus Taylor is assistant minister for cities and digital transformation, but some people believe he is destined for higher honours.

He has been touted as a future Prime Minister, no less.

Macarthur business people will get the chance to find out if there is any substance to the Angus Taylor when the man himself comes to the heart of the region as guest speaker.

Ingleburn Business Chamber has just announced that Mr Taylor has accepted its invitation to appear as its guest speaker at a major event to be held at Wests Leagues Club on Friday, November 18 at noon.

Angus Taylor was elected to Federal parliament in September 2013, replacing long serving Liberal MP Alby Schultz in what was then the rural NSW seat of Hume.

With a strong interest in economics, Taylor was appointed to parliamentary committees including the Coalition’s Backbench Employment Committee, the Joint Committee on Trade and Investment Growth, the Joint Committee on Public Accounts and Audit and in late 2015 was appointed Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties.

After two years on the backbench, he was made an assistant minister to the Prime Minister with special responsibility for cities and digital transformation.

Before entering parliament in 2013, Taylor was a director at Port Jackson Partners, where he was a strategy and business advisor to a number of global and Australian companies and public sector organisations.

He provided advice at a CEO and board level in the resources, agriculture, energy and infrastructure sectors.

Before that he was a partner at global consulting firm McKinsey & Co.

The Hume MP has a Bachelor of Economics (first class honours and university medal) and a Bachelor of Laws (honours) from the University of Sydney.

He also has a Master of Philosophy in Economics from Oxford, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar.

His thesis was in the field of competition policy.

In his private capacity Angus has founded or advised a number of small, fast growing start-up businesses, many in the agriculture sector.

He lives at Goulburn with his wife Louise and their four children.

Following a redistribution for the 2016 federal election, his seat of Hume now includes large tracts of the Macarthur region and as a result there are now frequent sightings of the man many people believe will one day become Prime Minister.

Individual registrations to the business luncheon on November 18 are $85; a table of 10 is $750.
