Navigating disruption

How have you led your team amid the current economic uncertainty? How do you create a clear roadmap when national and global forces are influencing how we work? Can you share your experience in succession planning and ensuring talent continuity? What do you do when your best employee quits? How have you scaled and grown your business to tackle the challenges of today and tomorrow?

Client experience

Do you have a story to share about working with a great client and what led to that experience? Are you a client who can share what you need from consultants to create a harmonious and productive relationship? What does an excellent relationship look like and what do clients and consultants need from each other?

People leadership

What do business leaders need to know about attracting, retaining and engaging with Gen Z, who will make up a quarter of the Asia-Pacific population by 2025? Is there a Gen Z speaker in your organisation you could put forward as the voice of the future? How do you lead in the age of superdiversity, where migration has resulted in an unprecedented variety of cultures, identities, faiths, languages, and immigration statuses? How can you lead your team to engage genuinely and effectively with Māori?

Technology and innovation

What’s the key to building a successful digital strategy? How can you lead your organisation through a digital revolution? How can professional service consultancies effectively incorporate AI and automation? How can business leaders use innovation to maintain a competitive advantage? How can you harness client-centric innovation so it can be reproduced, repackaged and resold?
