Exclusive CIO Lunch: Culture, Innovation, Talent, Problem Solving and Teams – Lessons from Australia’s History

Enjoy a three course networking lunch (menu attached) with fellow CIOs and hear from David Hunt. What has made Australia a successful society? What makes a successful business? The answers to these two questions have a surprising amount in common. From the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788, the people who would one day be known as Australians embarked on an unprecedented program of unlocking the human capital of their radical new society. David will explore some of the unique factors in Australia’s success, as well as some of its failures, and how those lessons may be applied in a business environment.
