Dienstag, 08.10.2019 – German Business Day

German Business Day

The 2019 German Business Day is part of the 4th Brisbane German Week. It is jointly organised by the German Consulate in Brisbane, the Queensland Chapter of the German-Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce and SAP in Brisbane, the German Australian Business Association and the German Australian Business Women Association.

Previous events focused on Industry 4.0 and the Data Economy as fast-moving themes of global relevance.

In 2019, the theme of the German Business Day will be ‘Trust – Gain, Regain, Repair’.
Trust has become a primary concern across all sectors. However, the development of a dedicated trust management discipline is still in its infancy.

We are delighted that Prof Nicole Gillespie, KPMG Chair in Organizational Trust and Professor at the UQ Business School, will conduct the opening keynote for the German Business Day.

A special thanks goes out to our sponsor SAP, loyal partner of the German Business Day since 2016. We are grateful that your wonderful facilitates will again host the event.
