Want to network with thousands of senior-level decision makers? Or did you want to hear from world-class tech gurus, academics, psychologists and marketers? How about seeing the most successful Olympian ever up close and personal?
If any of these options tickle your fancy, you should head along to the World Business Forum Sydney next year.
The two-day event brings together an eclectic mix of business leaders to share their thoughts and ideas on some of the most pertinent issues faced by modern businesspeople.
As much as the event is about working to overcome problems, it is also about uncovering the opportunities that may be hidden somewhere.
WBF 2020 puts a focus on people and technology. How can the possibilities of technology be unlocked to deliver game-changing outcomes?
Leading the conversation will be WOBI’s host of guest speakers.
When it comes to performance and success, there are few people that know it better than the most successful Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps.
Phelps won a staggering 28 medals (23 Gold) across four Olympic Games. And while he will not be giving swimming lessons at WBF 2020, he will be giving advice on the importance of goal setting, facing failure and giving back.
Also speaking is branding and culture transformation expert Martin Lindstrom.
Lindstrom is a guru in consumer psychology and neuroscientific research. But he also knows how to apply this academic knowledge into real-world outcomes, currently working with Fortune 100 companies to help build future-proof brands.
Another one for marketers is blogging extraordinaire Ann Handley. As well as being a best-selling author, Handley now works with MarketingProfs to train marketers in how to drive success in their company.
She is also well-versed in the ‘brave new world of content’ and how to define the objectives of a content strategy.
Former Apple chief evangelist and Silicon Valley icon Guy Kawasaki will also be speaking. Despite his Silicon Valley past, Kawasaki is now Sydney-based and sharing his extensive knowledge with Australian graphic design and technology sweetheart Canva.
