SEBN Christmas Breakfast… at lunch time with Bernard Salt AM
Rebuilding Australia: The Role of manufacturing in creating a stronger nation
The coming of the coronavirus has changed Australia and Australians. We are more focussed on the idea of self-sufficiency – especially when it comes to manufacturing. Australia will strengthen its manufacturing capabilities during the 2020’s, particularly in Melbourne’s South East manufacturing heartland.
New businesses, new technology, perhaps even new markets will drive a new generation of businesses focussed on delivering best quality products and services from Melbourne’s South East. But what are the skills, the training, the support mechanisms that will be required in the 2020’s? Now is the time to think boldly – not so much about the challenges that lie ahead, but of the opportunities.
Bernard Salt is one of corporate Australia’s leading thinkers on matters relating to the future. Do not miss this compelling session, scoping the prospects for manufacturing and services across the region and Australia.
