“This year’s Forbes Australia Business Summit features a powerful line-up of exceptional speakers, transforming the cover stories from the magazine into a unique, interactive experience.

“These influential leaders, alongside other CEOs, entrepreneurs and changemakers, will highlight the opportunities amid the disruption and how we can innovate and grow against a shifting economic backdrop – from delving into the AI boom that will continue to transform the way we work, to attracting VC funding in a cash strapped climate, to evolving return-to-work policies and turning economic turbulence into opportunities,” she said.

“When it comes to success, nothing beats hearing it from those who have done it before.”
