Join 2000+ business leaders from around the globe for an unparalleled live knowledge experience at Australia's World Business Forum at The Star, Sydney, 31 May - 1 June 2017.

In a league of its own the World Business Forum hosts global leaders in business and management and will again see the biggest congregation of senior executives in Australia.

World Business Forum Sydney 2017 will highlight that in a world where new technologies emerge at pace, those who anticipate change and are quickly able to adapt will flourish. Organisations and individuals alike must reinvent themselves constantly; experiment and learn; identify new opportunities, exploit them fast, and move on. In this world it is the entrepreneur, the experimenter, the risk taker who will thrive.

Long term competitive advantage is dead! Are you ready to live in a state of permanent BETA?
