Upcoming National Growth Summit is on In Sydney on the 17th & 18th of February.
The entire conference looks interesting, but I am inspired by the Workshops. The technology Workshop looks particularly interesting.
The PDF for the summit describes it as:
Technology to Drive Growth and Profitability In this highly interactive one-day workshop you will hear from leading experts who will help you build an IT framework and invest in the next stage of technology and systems for your business.
The one-day seminar will comprise of: • Case studies and expert presentations of highly successful businesses designed to illustrate real-world examples of best practices in the use of technology and processes to achieve goals • Keynote presentations by thought leaders taking an overview approach on hot topics and issues of the day • Demonstrations – how to/practical application of the latest technology • Round table discussions – an opportunity to interact with other business owners on their experiences with technology and ask the experts questions relevant to your business
