A number of business and academic leaders will share their knowledge during the two-day conference, including keynote speaker, Business Council of Australia CEO, Jennifer Westacott.

Other presenters include Social Traders Manager Policy and Development Mark Daniels and Dr Lucas Walsh, Associate Dean at the Faculty of Education at Monash University and former Director of Research and Evaluation at The Foundation for Young Australians.

Social entrepreneur, STREAT CEO Rebecca Scott will share her insights on targeting the ‘too hard basket’ and will present a successful case study of a growing business employing the 'unemployable'.

The conference will teach delegates how to create public and private partnerships which will integrate young marginalised jobseekers into society.
It will also hold discussion panels to look at what can be improved for the next generation of workforce.

Topics on the agenda will include how a young workforce can benefit a business and its brand, school to work transitions for young people at risk, incentives and promotion of youth employment.
