LEADERSHIP IN THE AGE OF INNOVATION

Future-proofing for the Ideas Boom

In December 2015, the Australian Government launched the National Innovation and Science Agenda, setting in motion a national movement known as the ‘ideas boom’. By incentivising and rewarding innovation, entrepreneurship and risk-taking, the plan is for Australia to transition away from a resource-based economy to a knowledge-based economy.

AGSM @ UNSW Business School invites you to an exclusive AGSM alumni professional development conference. Led by respected academics and industry leaders, you will explore the skills and strategies needed to thrive in the emerging innovation economy in Australia, the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

Science, technology and the digital domain will play an increasingly important role in this new landscape. Cross-sector collaborations will be vital for success and require new management paradigms. How will today’s leaders prepare for and thrive in this emerging innovation economy?

Industry and government experts will discuss the latest academic thinking and research behind entrepreneurship, ethical leadership and sustainability.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur or intrapreneur, a current or future leader, this event will help prepare you for the age of innovation and the next phase of your business career.
