The NSW Business Chamber is hosting an event to facilitate collaboration between innovators and businesses on the 27th of July.

The goal is to lay the foundations for businesses of the future, many of whom will be working within a drastically shifting and exciting new business landscape.

As new industries emerge, and the way that older industries operate undergo significant paradigm shifts, an increased dialogue between companies and think-tanks will be vital towards the continuation of business.

At the event, speakers will “look at some of the new innovations and identify where the current shifts are in employment and skills across industries and possibly geographies”. 

Speakers will then address strategies for growth and development moving forward, both for businesses, and for the government departments associated.

As part of the proceedings, the Chamber will be hosting presenters from several Universities’ Innovation Hubs who will be participating in a Q&A panel. These are:

  • Brad Furber,Chief Operating Officer, Michael Crouch Innovation Centre, University  NSW
  • Dr Andy Marks, Assistant Vice-Chancellor, Strategy and Policy, Western Sydney University
  • Martin Lloyd, Deputy Director, Research Engagement, University of Technology Sydney
  • The event will run from 7am to 10am, and breakfast will be provided. For further details and pricing, see the NSW Business Chamber website and event page.
