The University of Queensland (UQ) Business School invites you to our Thought Leadership Series in partnership with KPMG, Building Business Resilience, on Wednesday 28 September 2022

Over recent years governments, economies and the organisations that help them thrive have witnessed unprecedented threats to supply chains, cyber security and critical infrastructure.

In response to current industry and education challenges, UQ Business School, KPMG and our respective industry partners, have collaborated to develop a Thought Leadership paper that explores the necessity to build resilience in critical areas, as well as harnessing a global customer, community, and the crucial importance of ESG.

Strategies to build resilience

At the event, our panel speakers will explore the key drivers of change, take a holistic view of our ability to anticipate trends and variability to withstand change and threats, and provide insight on how to thrive, not just survive.

You will hear from

Enjoy the discussion, drinks, networking and canapés at our in-person event. Alternatively, if you are not Brisbane-based you can register for our livestream option. Tickets are limited, so register today to ensure you don't miss out!

"The Thought Leadership Series topics bring awareness for how economy and ecology are linked, and my views and knowledge about our society's ecological limit are both challenged and informed by these sessions."

“The thing I love about the Thought Leadership Series is you get really digestible, applicable information. It’s not a lecture, it’s short, sweet and relevant.”
