CEOs bounce back after the global financial crisis

31 Aug 2009
Resilience is the theme of UQ Business School's CEO Summit presented with The CEO Institute and featuring Ausenco's Zimi Meka and ex-investment banker John R. Talbott. UQ Business School Head Professor Fiona Rohde said Mr Meka's keynote address would examine the impact of the global financial crisis on the global resources and energy sectors. "Summit participants will also enjoy John R. Talbott's lunchtime address in which he outlines his views on the reasons for the crisis and proposes a range of reforms," she said. Author of seven books on the economy, John R. Talbott predicted the collapse in a 1999 book, the housing crash in his 2003 book The Coming Crash in the Housing Market and the international banking crisis in his 2006 book Sell Now! The End of the Housing Bubble. His new book, The 86 Biggest Lies on Wall Street, published in Australia by Scribe Publications, exposes the practices that led to the biggest stockmarket collapse since the Great Depression - and reveals what it will take to rebuild the US economy. The program features a panel discussion led by the Australian Industry Group's Chris Rodwell, insights from the latest research presented by UQ Business School's Mat Hayward and Renée Adams, and leadership lessons with super-chair James Strong. Also on the program are new Brisbane Airports Corporation CEO Julieanne Alroe, CEO of Lifeline Community Care Trevor Carlyon, and entrepreneur Andrew Cooper. An interview with Mirvac Queensland Chairman Chris Freeman concludes the event. The CEO Summit will be held at UQ Business School Downtown on Friday 11 September.
