MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear Members and Friends,
Social Licence to Operate: Reinventing the growth engine is the theme for the 2019 National Innovation Schneider Electric Business Forum. Following the outstanding success of the 2018 sessions which took place in 3 locations, our 2019 Business Forum will take place for the first time in 5 cities across Australia: Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
The event, during which we will bring together key speakers from government, senior academic circles and pioneering French, Australian and international companies, is once again one of the focal points of the year. It will showcase some of the best innovative practices and highlight new solutions.
Organised under the patronage of His Excellency Mr Christophe Penot, Ambassador of France to Australia, this series of panel discussions, keynotes and Q&As will show the French-Australian business community’s crucial contribution on this important topic.
The social impact of the private sector as it relates to environmental sustainability, diversity and inclusion, community engagement, etc. is a hot topic. Arguably, a company’s social licence to operate is today one of its most valuable assets.
And from a public governance perspective, against a backdrop of scandals and Royal Commissions, how do the corporate world and the public sector contribute as agents of sustainable change? How do they regain community trust?
Take part in shaping the future. Let’s build a program with you!
Register your interest and contribute to the conversation at our 2019 National Innovation Schneider Electric Business Forum by August 2019.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry
