The German Business Day 2019 is jointly organised by the German 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 sponsor SAP in Brisbane, loyal partner of the German Business Day since 2016. We thank SAP for, once again, hosting the event at their wonderful facilities.
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 will be ‘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 are delighted that Prof Nicole Gillespie, KPMG Chair in Organisational Trust and Professor at the UQ Business School, will conduct the opening keynote for the German Business Day.
A series of presentations and two-panel discussions will help to gain new insights not only into much-discussed issues related to trust repair, but also explore the role of trust as a source of competitive advantage.
