Event Topics


Recent disasters and the onset of the COVID pandemic have found businesses large and small racing to adapt to new trading environments. Business disruption is now a common theme across all industries. How do we achieve effective Business Preparedness?


Housing is a hot topic across Australia right now and with low availability of rental stock, rising rents and house prices it’s little wonder. Recent displacements due to fire and floods have only added pressure to the housing market. What does housing of the future look like?


Creating a sustainable future is increasingly significant part of our conversations. How we work, live and invest is consistently challenged with an uprising of consumer demand to be eco friendly in our buying decisions and general behaviours. How do we make the most of the circular economy?
