World Business Forum Sydney 2017

After a successful World Business Forum Sydney in 2014, 2015 and 2016, we are happy to bring you this next chapter for WBF Sydney at The Event Centre, The Star on 31 May - 1 June 2017.

In 2017 the World Business Forum will highlight that in a world where new technologies emerge at pace, those who anticipate change and are quickly able to adapt will flourish. Organisations and individuals alike must reinvent themselves constantly; experiment and learn; identify new opportunities, exploit them fast, and move on. In this world it is the entrepreneur, the experimenter, the risk taker who will thrive.

Long term competitive advantage is dead! Are you ready to live in a state of permanent BETA?
