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 greater. 


The Australian Financial Review Business Summit is a groundbreaking event that brings together leaders in the fields of business, media, government, technology, leadership and strategy to define a new era of leadership. The Financial Review is the leader in business journalism and will be setting the agenda for prospective future growth for Australian business.


The Summit will be utilising the journalistic experience of The Financial Review editors to unleash innovation, productivity and purpose-driven performance.  This is the first time this event will be held in Australia but the event already has the backing of BHP, ANZ and 2nd Road.
