Les Schirato Awarded United Nations Lifework Award
Mr Leslie Schirato was awarded the UNAA Lifework - Individual 2016 for his contributions to the Australian coffee industry and the Food & Beverage industry at large. For services to the community and philanthropic contributions to health, youth, rural areas, social welfare and those less fortunate. For investing time and mentoring of youth in business and talent development. For the success of a thriving third generation family owned Australian business.
Each year the United Nations only present one award each to an individual and community.
In an inspiring and entertaining speech, Mr Schirato shared stories of humble beginnings. He acknowledged his migrant father and the work ethic instilled in him which he has passed onto his children, Rolando and Gabriela. He made specific note of the extraordinary people he has worked with and met all over the world and the fortune this has afforded him.
It is Mr Schirato's renowned Graduate program, his contributions to philanthropic organisations The Curran Foundation and Oz Harvest that have given him the greatest sense of achievement in his outstanding career.
"The UN and Australia have a lot in common with our Coffee Company, we take different beans, human beings from different origins and blend it all together to create the best" said Mr Schirato.
In closing, Mr Schirato quoted former Secretary General of the United Nations Kofi Annan, "There can be no peace without progress. And no progress without peace"
