Have you ever wondered why some trends spread quickly and stick? Or thought about selling your car to start a digital revolution, and along the way build a billion dollar enterprise?
Malcolm Gladwell, best-selling author of Tipping Point and Blink will explain why some products take off and spread successfully – and others don’t – at the Australian Chambers Business Congress, 1-3 June 2011.
Steve Wozniak, Co-founder of Apple Computer Inc, and world-renowned Harvard Professor, Michael Porter, will join Gladwell and over 50 international and Australian business experts in the exciting Congress program.
Over 1000 Australian business owners will hear the stories behind some of the most successful companies and entrepreneurs in the world, coming away inspired with fresh ideas to transform their own businesses.
Produced by the State and Territory Chambers of Commerce, the inaugural Australian Chambers Business Congress will be held at the Gold Coast Convention Centre on 1-3 June 2011.
“The Australian business community has long been looking for a major event that brings together thought leadership issues with practical business models” said Stephen Cartwright, CEO of NSW Business Chamber.
“During a time when Australian businesses are faced with significant uncertainty ranging from compliance to the introduction of a new carbon tax, this Congress provides an opportunity for business people to discuss and debate the key issues facing business today”.
The unparalleled 2 day program covers global megatrends and business sustainability, through to emerging business models including cloud computing, social media, mobility and innovation.
Delegates will also receive practical advice on managing finances, managing personal brand, incoming OHS compliance and workplace relations requirements.
