Keynote Speaker: Matt Church

Don’t miss out on this informative event with special Guest Speaker Matt Church. Matt is no ordinary presenter. He is the 2014/15 Australian Speaker of the Year and has recently been named one of the top ten motivational speakers in the world. As the founder of Thought Leaders Global, Matt’s greatest love is the development of thought leadership. It’s an obsession which connects him closely to some of the brightest and most brilliant minds in Australia, and across the world. His close connection with industry leaders spans a broad range of markets and activities, and as a chosen mentor to many of those leaders, he is in the unique position to have a deep insight into an enormous variety of topics, issues, markets, industries, and challenges. A prolific author, his publishing history is a demonstration of his polymathic nature, and his ability to draw from this incredibly diverse sphere of knowledge means he can often shed new light on a topic which an industry has “done to death”. From this space, he inspires people to think, expertly delivering key messages and weaving them together with narratives from a diverse range of sources.

Matt’s session will discuss the topic ‘NEXT: Thriving in the Decade of Disruption’. The simple fact is that the world is changing at an ever-increasing rate. Technological advances are creating shifting paradigms in every industry across the globe, and it’s a trend which we need to stand up and take notice of. In this rapidly changing world, the only certainty is that what works today will not work tomorrow. Old business models won’t work, old leadership styles won’t be tolerated, and slow-moving industries and businesses will become extinct. The successful players will be the ones with the greatest agility, creativity and foresight. A session with Matt focused on disruption will help put in place a culture of willingness and a practical framework for being agile, creative and building foresight. If you want to discover how the four business revolutions (R1–R4), and the four personal evolutions (E1–E4) will affect your industry, this is where the journey begins. This is how you future proof your career and business in the decade of disruption.
