AFR Business Dinner

Keynote addresses

Networking drinks

The Australian Financial Review Business Summit presented by BHP Billiton is the must-attend event of vital importance to the progress and prosperity of Australian business in the coming decade.

Australia is in the midst of a shifting geo-political order that continues to tilt towards Asia and its rising middle class. Technology is empowering consumers, disrupting supply chains and overthrowing established business models. The world is grappling with low rates and a lower-growth future. The challenges for Australian businesses have never been more complex and the need for leadership skills never larger.

After our biggest ever resource development boom, which companies, sectors and leaders will shape the Australian business landscape of the next decade? How should your company capitalise on the opportunities?
