A message from the CEO
For many family business leaders, the past year has accelerated unprecedented change. What was previously unimaginable shifts in our daily work lives has now become the new ‘normal’ as we strive towards new business demands, new creative visions and new ways to operate and survive. But uncertainty on a global scale begs the question: how do leaders forge ahead when there is no clear path for the future?
For over 22 years, the Family Business Conference – Asia Pacific has been connecting leaders across Australia and after a short hiatus last year, we are excited to be bringing it back in full swing. This year, the conference aims to ignite leaders for a new world through our unparalleled conference program.
I’m excited to announce that our headlining keynote speaker is none other than multi-award winning businesswoman and best-selling author, Janine Ellis, Founder of Boost Juice Bars. During her keynote session, Janine will share her learnings from starting Boost Juice and her approach to business which has made her a leader in her field.
Other keynotes include family members behind brands such as Coopers Brewery, Wittner Shoes, Packer Leather and Kookaburra, Vinomofo, Corval Group and Cochrane Entertainment.
To help leaders make informed decisions about the future, we have a host of sessions that are dedicated to igniting leaders for a new world. The sessions will focus on Crisis Management, strengthening your family’s resilience, supporting female leadership in family business and how to remain relevant and competitive in a rapidly changing market.
With such a strong conference program and dedicated sessions for you, your family and your family business advisors, we know that there is something for everyone.
I hope to see you on the Gold Coast for your conference as together, we forge a new path forward.
