As the world struggles to deal with an even greater economic catastrophe caused by the coronavirus pandemic, how would these leaders deal with today's crisis? How should we be working with our international partners and deal with China's growing assertiveness as the US wrestles to control the virus while tackling divisive issues at home, on the eve of the presidential election.
Paul Scurrah (CEO, Virgin Australia), Susan Wheeldon (Country Manager, Airbnb ANZ)
Leaders whose business models were devastated by the pandemic take us inside the boardroom as they led through the crisis. From making decisions with speed and adapting with conviction, to controlling costs and facing challenges with no modern precedent. All while leading with compassion and empathy for their people. So when yesterday's playbook was of no use - what have they learned about leading through crisis?
Cameron Adams (Canva - Co-founder and Chief Product Officer), Brett Armstrong (TikTok - General Manager).
The incredibly quick changes we saw in consumer behaviour and in the economy more widely during the Covid crisis had a huge impact on every business. While many sectors imploded as the economy ground to a halt overnight, some grew from the chaos. And the way in which consumers behave may have fundamentally changed forever - from the way we shop to the way we work, live and travel. So what does this mean for the businesses of the future? What will they look like, and what industries will boom in a post-pandemic world.
Mark Delaney (AustralianSuper - Chief Investment Officer and Deputy Chief Executive Officer), Jo Masters (EY Oceania - Chief Economist)
