The agenda for the day includes:

Dean has over 20 years' experience in analysing the economy and assessing the implications both in Australia and globally. At NAB, Dean leads a team of analysts responsible for monitoring key business trends and identifying industries which are likely to provide the strongest growth opportunities and greatest risk.

Panel Discussion - Collaboration - facilitated by Peter Murphy - Peter Murphy has over 25 years' experience in finance, management and governance but is possibly best known for his time as CEO of Christian Super. Christian Super is a collaboration of several independent but missionally aligned organisations. During his tenure as CEO he grew funds under management 175% and membership by 65%. His insights, and those of the panel, will be invaluable.

Focus Groups - Facilitate innovation, share best-practice - These groups allow for an informal discussion on a range of topics directly related to your area of interest. Each stream will be facilitated by a topic expert, with two breakout sessions scheduled for the day. Streams identified are:
