Transforming Business 2021

The theme for the Conference is Business Model Innovation. Leading presenters will address how to think about your business in terms of its business model rather than a static plan (Professor Ingrid Burkett) and will address a range of possibilities to consider including cooperatives, social enterprise, and the purpose economy for opportunities in business model innovation (Dr Guy Turnbull-UK Entrepreneur of the Year).

The concurrent streams will address business model innovation in a few industry contexts relevant to this region. Whilst we take an open view of what business model innovation looks like, the intent of the day is to lead and assist local businesses to completely rethink their approach to their business and look for additional value and find motivation to turn things upside down, in being brave and entrepreneurial and in being the disrupters they presently fear.

The purpose of the event is to improve business competitiveness through sharing new knowledge, skills and expertise and connecting and networking with other regional business owners. The anticipated outcome is bigger steps in the creation of sustainable businesses that drive and support a strong regional economy with jobs growth.
