CAMPBELL Newman was the face of Queensland State politics for three short years.

ThE one-term leader both polarised and galvanised. Nearly everything he did lead to controversy. For Campbell Newman however, reform came at a very high price.

On Friday October 9, Mr Newman will speak openly about his leadership at The Events Centre Caloundra. 

"This event isn't about politics. It's about understanding the risks and the challenges of change. Few people are better qualified to speak on this topic than Campbell Newman,'' a chamber release said.

The event coincides with the official Sunshine Coast launch of biography 'Can Do Campbell Newman and the Challenge of Reform' by Gavin King.
