The event will be dedicated to gaining an understanding of success factors behind the tremendous improvements in corporate performance we have seen in response to COVID-19. Organisations across various industries have excelled – they accelerated, scaled, converted to an extent never seen before. How to make such leapfrogging the new normal and how do we emerge even stronger, anti-fragile, will be key questions answered during the event. We will explore collaborative pathways between Queensland–based and German corporations ranging from established to emerging organisations. Please find information on speakers and sponsors further below.
