The Australian Leadership Retreat is the country’s premier gathering of leaders from business, government and civil society, for the fearless exchange of ideas concerning Australia and the world. An invitation-only event, with strong international participation, the Retreat provides exceptional networking opportunities. It sets, rather than follows, the agenda and participants inform and influence business and national policies, through open, robust, and confidential debate, with a deliberate focus on the long term. Over the last two decades, the Australian Leadership Retreat has been a forum for top 100 CEOs to interact in an informal setting with Governors General, Prime Ministers, Presidents of other nations, Cabinet Ministers and Opposition Leaders, Department Heads, Vice-Chancellors and leading thinkers, including several Nobel Laureates. Australian Leadership Retreat programs are designed to facilitate opportunities for peer-to-peer discussions, networking and present participants with insights to inform their strategies, through a series of concentrated exclusive and confidential briefings and discussions led by a distinguished group of Australian and international speakers.
