The Australian Financial Review Business Summit Sets Agenda for 2017 with Risk Takers, Growth Makers and Wealth Creators

6 December 2016:
Australia’s premier source of business and finance news and information, The Australian Financial Review, will hold its second-ever Business Summit on March 8-9, 2017​, presented by BHP Billiton.

 The Financial Review Business Summit will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney and will kick-start 2017 by gathering hundreds of Australia’s business elite and involving them in an important conversation to drive the nation’s economic prosperity. The big themes of risk taking, growth making and wealth creation will be explored. 

Financial Review Editor-in-Chief Michael Stutchbury said: “The prospect of President Trump underlines how 2016 has turned into the year in which political populism became a clear business risk. Our 2017 Business Summit will focus on what sort of risks businesses need to take to grow amid ongoing digital disruption, the new phase of Chinese economic development and today’s ultra-low yield world. Amid political dysfunction in Canberra, our two-day 'Risk Takers, Growth Makers and Wealth Creators' summit will showcase Australia’s business success and help reshape the economic growth debate in Australia.” 

The lineup for this must-attend event for industry leaders and opinion makers will soon be announced. Speakers are being curated by the Financial Review’s Editor-in-Chief and agenda-setting editors and journalists and will include internationally renowned business thinkers and leaders. 

Financial Review subscribers will receive a 15% discount. 

First release tickets start from $1700 and will be on sale from today.
