Last day for early bird tickets to Lessons in Leadership

By AdNews | 14 September 2018

It's the last day to get your hands on early bird tickets to Lessons in Leadership, priced at $279.00 per ticket, taking place on October 24 in Sydney. 

In partnership with MediaCom, and supported by Commtract, Lessons In Leadership will bring together the most senior leaders across the advertising and media businesses who will share their stories, wisdom and tricks of the trade.

Lessons in Leadership will be opened with a keynote speech by the formidable business woman, marketer, entrepreneur and author, Janine Garner.

There will be a strong focus on successful people management; how to bring together the strongest and most inspired workforces, and how this is essential to generating robust, long-term business outcomes.

Three CEOs will share three different leadership methods; one retired CEO will reflect on their journey to the C-suite - with none of the lows erased; while a gang of emerging talent (chosen from our Top Emerging Leaders list due out next month), will brainstorm the future of our industry and how the attributes of a leader will need to change in 15 or 20 years' time.

On top of that, there will be a special presentation where MediaCom Sydney GM Ben McCallum will reveal the leadership lessons he has learned from his sporting heroes.

No stone will be left unturned. If your ambition is to lead our industry and drive change, this event is for you.
