We are looking forward to hearing from our two keynote speakers for this Forum.
When it comes to the topic of how to learn from history for the next decade, our opening speaker, John Winning, CEO of the Winning Group, knows a thing or two about how to move a business forward whilst retaining elements of its legacy and traditional standards of excellence. John will explain how he proved himself as a business leader in his own right and brought about change while at the same time paying tribute to the family’s heritage and rich history with the company.
In our closing session, Australia’s most successful coach, Ric Charlesworth will talk to us about performance and team work. Not many coaches have been effective with both male and female teams or coached in one code (Hockey) when succeeding in another (he played cricket for WA). While it can be dangerous to apply lessons from the sporting world to business, Ric has considered issues of individual and team performance at a level that can be applied in any organisation. He is also Australia’s best researched coach and his time as a Federal MP also qualifies him to understand broader issues than just those of the sporting field. If nothing else, he can always tell us what it was really like to face Dennis Lillee in the nets when in his prime!
