The Australian Leadership Retreat held in the idyllic setting of One&Only Hayman Island, on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, 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.

Numerous CEO’s from major Australian and international companies attended and spoke, together with senior Federal Ministers and department heads, university vice-chancellors, eminent experts and other leaders.

Undoubtedly 2015 will be a year to test our nation and its institutions and businesses. With ongoing disruption in many sectors and increasing geo-economic and geopolitical challenges, we need fresh and bold thinking. Our theme reflects the imperative for us to create a basis for future prosperity by imagining and forging a resilient future.

The program was designed to present participants, drawn from the highest levels of business and other sectors, with broader insights to inform their strategies, through a series of exclusive and confidential briefings and discussions led by a distinguished group of Australian and international speakers.

The Retreat provides in-depth insights and offered exceptional opportunities for peer-to-peer discussions and networking.
