Refugees to Entrepreneurs – Resilience, bravery with a bit of luck & timing.

For our first Sydney event of the year, we ask what it takes to succeed and contribute in Australia’s business and corporate environments.

We have a rich history of immigration and stories of refugees becoming entrepreneurs and making their mark in our country. Join us with one of the nation’s most influential business people and philanthropists for an up close and personal discussion on refugees and their contribution to our culture and blazing a trail in Australia.

We welcome Chairman of Allianz Australia and Thrive Refugee Enterprise Limited, John Curtis AM, in conversation with one of Australia’s most dynamic journalists and co-founder of Media Diversity Australia, Antoinette Lattouf.

With an illustrious career making his mark in the Australian corporate sphere including roles as Deputy Chairman of Westpac Bank, Chairman of St George Bank, Channel 10 and Merrill Lynch Australia Advisory Board and Director of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

We’re privileged to be joined by John Curtis and gain unique insights and advice on his career and making an impact. Take this opportunity to learn from John – book your tickets now!
