Organised by WOBI each year in different cities across the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia, World Business Forum provides a two-day update in critical management topics, delivered by global thought leaders, to help you do better business.
Those who attend The World Business Forum Sydney do so to learn and be inspired by some of the most influential figures in the business world and beyond; A blend of content delivered by CEOs, entrepreneurs, innovators, thought leaders and creative minds.
In a world of information overload, World Business Forum focuses on the issues most relevant for today’s leaders and business people, stimulating new thinking and inspiring action. It also provides a unique networking environment to connect with like-minded professionals.
This year’s theme is Humanification: too often the focus of leaders continues to be on structural organisation – not on empowering those who actually make up those organisations; on the product – not on the consumer for whom the product is supposedly made for; on the technology – not on the problem that technology is supposed to solve.
