Hardly a day goes by when we are not reminded of the uncertain era we live in. The glory years of the mining boom have tailed off rapidly, share markets are volatile and China’s economy is slowing. Consumer tastes are fickle and new technologies and business models emerge in the blink of an eye – sometimes with devastating effect on existing players. Uncertainty is a threat but it is also an opportunity. If we learn how to better set and reset strategy and plan for flexibility in implementation, we can ride, and even get ahead of, the waves of change.

To help businesses and not for profit enterprises address the challenges of this uncertain period of our history The Leading Partnership has assembled an impressive range of speakers and some great, easy to use models to assist in the strategy and plan formation process.

Join us on 31 March for breakfast and stimulating discussion.

Peter is also the former Chairman of Dominion Mining Limited, The GPT Group, and St Vincents and Mater Health, Sydney and St Ignatius College, Riverview. Peter will speak about how he goes about assembling disparate partners to form, major unincorporated joint ventures.
