Dienstag, 08.10.2019 – German Business Day


The German Business Day 2019 was jointly organised by the German Honorary Consulate in Brisbane, the Queensland Chapter of the German-Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK), the German Australian Business Association (GABA) and the German-Australian Business Women Association (GABWA).

A special thanks goes out to our host SAP in Brisbane, loyal partner of the German Business Day since 2016. We also very much like to thank Austral Volkswagen for being a sponsor of the event.

Previous events focused on Industry 4.0 and the Data Economy as fast-moving themes of global relevance and provided deep, contemporary insights into topics with significant impact.

In 2019, the theme of the German Business Day was ‘Trust – Gain, Regain, Repair’.
Trust has become a primary concern across all sectors. However, there is still a lack of a shared understanding of trust and the development of a dedicated trust management discipline and overall trust literacy are still in their infancy.

We were delighted that Prof Nicole Gillespie, KPMG Chair in Organisational Trust and Professor at the UQ Business School, conducted the opening keynote for the German Business Day. In her presentation she covered the different notions of trust and how to build, preserve and repair it. Her internationally known research is grounded in case studies will bring essential trust concepts to light. Prof. Gillespie elaborated on the status of applied research in terms of measuring trust along the dimensions of ability, benevolence and integrity. She also demonstrated the core steps of trust repair and the discussed cultural differences when it comes to trust judgements.

A series of presentations and two-panel discussions helped to gain new insights not only into much-discussed issues related to the trust crisis, but also explored the role of trust as a source of competitive advantage.

The topic selected and the overall line-up of speakers attracted a record number of 130 registered attendees. Our MC Nadine McGrath summarised the discussions of the day in an article that consolidates the main outcomes and discussions points. You can download her summary here.
