Thinking of the future
With 2017 rapidly approaching the special guests at our final Success Stories Breakfast of the year got attendees ‘Thinking for the Future’.
Recently returned from the States, MC Brett McLeod opened proceedings by sharing some fascinating insights into the US elections. If you’re looking for a polling source in the lead up to November 8’s election, Brett highly recommends fivethirtyeight.com a site created by Nate Silver – who was originally a specialist baseball statistician - that uses statistical analysis and hard numbers to tell compelling stories about politics and elections.
Special guest speaker Glenn Fitzgerald shared his success story – from his early days as an employee at Destination Group, to buying out the company which sets the standard in Australasia as a premium provider of incentive, travel and conference services.
Glen provided insight into the ways innovation, detail and accountability have allowed his business to evolve to meet the needs of an ever-expanding marketplace by providing services including event management, travel design & web and public relations.
Finally Commonwealth Bank economist Michael Workman took to the stage with a reassuring update on the Victorian economy telling attendees: “the way big parts of the Victorian economy are working is very good”.
