Speaker
Sydney, Australia
2010 Forbes Global CEO Conference

The Forbes Global CEO Conference 2010 took place in Sydney on September 28th to the 29th and gathered under one roof some 400 of the world's most influential captains of industry and thought-leaders to share insights on the best strategies to navigate the post-crisis economic landscape and seize new opportunities in volatile times. Hosted by the Australian Government and the New South Wales Government, it held the theme of "Full Sail Ahead", which likens today's business leader to a master mariner, whose challenge is to outwit the forces of uncertain economic conditions and whose determination is to capture new growth prospects through the power of innovation to create a prosperous and sustainable future.
