Biography: Dr. McMillan is a leading Australian academic, thought leader, and social commentator in the field of human resources and the complexities of the modern workplace. He was a regular researcher, author, and presenter in Australia and internationally. For decades, he led social enterprises and an international human resources company. Today, he serves in non-executive director and chair roles of national and international social justice, faith and work, and young people’s organizations. He is a fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. He has also been recognized by the Australian Government with an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for services to Australians with disabilities and health care organizations.

Dr. McMillan has long held the belief that there is more that can be done to change the way churches view the Monday to Sunday divide. This connection between faith and work has been a driving ambition. He has been centrally involved with a strategy to change the way theological seminaries view the integration of faith and work. He mentors young aspiring leaders and board chairs.

His research interests have included examining the way businesses view the impact they have on humanity. A major research study that continues today is the study of loneliness. He is also conducting research on Rembrandt’s painting of the Prodigal Son.

He is married to Elsa, and they live in Melbourne, Australia.
