Why You Should Attend

Innovate Australia 2017

In a constantly-changing world, standing still is equivalent to dying business. True innovation is about investing right resources, taking the right risk at a right time and coming out with a right product. Australia has slipped two places on the Global Innovation Index to 19th in 2016 which was ranked at 17th in 2015, while, the neighbours of Australia are moving forward aggressively in innovation with the ambitions of diversifying their businesses and services in the region or even, across the globe, according to A.T Kearney. Australia had an astounding stage for innovation, but it was not spelling out to results. How to achieve agile and profitable innovation is a key challenge to most of the organisations.
