    "I really enjoyed the event. The speakers had great topics and backgrounds and the Forum organisers were excellent."

    CARNIVAL AUSTRALIA

    "It was great to have a variety of different industries and really good mix of keynote speakers, panel and round table discussions. All speakers were relatable. A great opportunity to hear from everyone in the room in one way or another. Astonishing that I did not feel like there was too much information or fatigue at the end of the day."

    IKEA AUSTRALIA

    “An outstanding day with thought leaders and like-minded Supply Chain professionals. Excellent mix of speakers who had different challenges through Covid. Panel discussions tend to be less compelling, so I was particularly impressed with the innovation panel who articulated a relatable journey.”
