Guiding growing businesses
Anthony Moss (session chaiman): Good morning everybody – ladies and gentlemen. Thank you to Michael Walls, Publisher of Access News Australia for organising today’s event. Thank you to David Pring and KPMG for being our sponsor for the event, and also thank you to David for being our host of the event today, in this luxurious Sebel hotel, resort and Spa Hawkesbury which is excellent. We want to have a robust discussion today about strategy, it’s relevance to business, what’s a good strategy, what’s a bad strategy, how do businesses drive and develop new strategies, why should they bother anyway –. So, only a couple of Simple rules – which is: One, please jump in, please engage, and two, every idea is valid. Sound reasonable? Are we ready to jump in – everybody feeling pretty cool and relaxed and happy to share their ideas and their views? David Pring, can we start with you, with an introduction if we may?
