Bond Business Leaders Forum: How Australia can benefit from global volatility

Technology and telecommunications business leader, David Thodey AO, will discuss how Australia can capitalise on global volatility at the final Bond Business Leaders Forum for 2017.

The chairman of CSIRO and JobsNSW will highlight what is driving volatility in the international business environment and strategies for Australian businesses to respond, at Bond University on Tuesday, 5 September.

Mr Thodey, who has more than three decades of global business experience, will also emphasise the need for a robust science, research and innovation focus in Australia.

In addition to his roles with CSIRO and JobsNSW, Mr Thodey sits on the advisory boards of SquarePeg Capital - which partners with, and supports, entrepreneurs who are building the tech leaders of tomorrow - and United Health Group (UHG), a leader in building innovative solutions for business and healthcare providers.

He is also the former chief executive officer of Telstra and has held numerous senior executive positions with IBM Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific, including as Australian managing director.  

Bond Business School Executive Dean, Professor Terry O'Neill, said Mr Thodey's extensive experience as a global business leader would provide Gold Coasters with a rare insight into potentially untapped opportunities.

"David will draw on his experience at the helm of some of Australia's largest public and private organisations to discuss how the uncertainty in global markets can actually benefit our business community," he said.

"Given the fact sustained talk about global volatility continues to impact our markets, this is a timely discussion and those who attend will no doubt walk away with an invaluable new perspective."

The Bond Business Leaders Forum will be held at the University's Princeton Room on Tuesday, 5 September from 12 noon. Tickets are $75 per person or $600 for a table of 10 and include a two-course luncheon and drinks.
