In June 2002, Palmer was appointed Adjunct Professor of Business at Deakin University's Faculty of Business and Law, a role he held until 2006. During that time, he delivered a series of lectures as part of Deakin's MBA Residential Programs. In 2008 Palmer was appointed Adjunct Professor of Management at Bond University on the Gold Coast.
In December 2012, Palmer was appointed secretary general of the World Leadership Alliance. A democracy promoting council that includes former US president Bill Clinton, Myanmar's opposition leader Aun San Suu Kyi. Palmer was also named president of the alliance's business chapter, the World Economic Council.
In December 2012, on Christmas Day, Palmer hosted a buffet lunch for 650 disadvantaged people, predominately for children and their families.
On 4 March 2012, Palmer was named, amid controversy, as a National Living Treasure by the New South Wales Branch of the National Trust of Australia.
On 29 February 2012, Ben Buckley and Frank Lowy announced that his license for Gold Coast United FC was to be revoked for constant breaches of FFA rules and regulations and sought to pay out the remaining contracts of the players for the remaining month of the season. Lowy has stated that he acted in order to protect the integrity of the sport. However, Palmer stipulated that he would contest the decisions through legal action and claimed Lowy was a dictator. Despite a ruling ordering the removal of "Freedom of Speech" logos on their shirts, Palmer has indicated they will remain. On 2 March 2012, Palmer lost his Supreme Court bid against Gold Coast United's expulsion from the A-League.
If I had to chose between a corrupt and crooked Gillard, a religious bigot like Abott, or a rich miner who would rather spend his fortune building the Titanic then its hands down for me.
I don't quite think that exists in Australia yet. Is Gillard part of some secret system?.. I don't think so. The only reason she got into this position was because Rudd made the mistake of trusting her when HE challenged and won. Does she listen and take influence from the bigger global entities? probably. Look back at Keating, Hawk, Latham... these were not men who were part of a global handshake
