News Prestige Network has announced the launch of GQ Australia’s Big Ideas Series and Summit.
Held in partnership with Optus, and with supporting partner Paco Rabanne, the series of virtual panel discussions with thought leaders and innovators will tackle the issues that shape the way we live and think, today.
The thought-provoking series will culminate with the GQ Big Ideas Summit on Thursday 5 November, featuring an international special guest and a panel of Australian game changers.
News Prestige Network editorial director of GQ Australia, Vogue Australia and Vogue Living Edwina McCann said: “In a year of upheaval we wanted to take a moment to celebrate those who are shaping the world we live in. These talks will cover everything from sport and politics to the future of work, and will define not only the issues that matter, but also what GQ stands for today.
“We’re delighted to partner with Optus for Big Ideas as we connect our audience with some of the thinkers, visionaries and mavericks leading us into tomorrow.”
Optus head of marketing Melissa Hopkins said: “At Optus looking to the future with a sense of optimism is at the heart of everything we do. Therefore it was a natural fit for Optus to partner with GQ on the Big Ideas Series, to bring meaningful and inspirational conversations to life at a time when people need connection more than ever.”
The GQ Big Ideas Series begins tonight at 7.00pm AEST, with a discussion focused on the ‘Future of Sport’.
Twenty years since the iconic Sydney Olympic Games – and at a time when the Games has been postponed for the first time in history – the virtual panel features Olympic champions Ian Thorpe and Mack Horton, who will reflect on the place of sport in the Australian culture and how the pandemic has upended the sporting calendar. The panel is hosted by acclaimed journalist and Sky News chief news anchor Kieran Gilbert.
The GQ Big Ideas Series will continue with the ‘Future of Work’ session on 8 October and ‘Future of Politics’ on 22 October, each featuring a stellar line-up of hosts and panellists.
GQ BIG IDEAS SERIES: 24 September, 8 October and 22 October at 7.00pm AEST
