There will be a networking opportunity followed by the keynote speaker, Brian McNeice, commencing at 6.00pm sharp.

This event will focus on the challenge of how to build a high performance environment. In today’s competitive economic environment the pressure to perform has never been greater. As a leader in your business your role is to create the right conditions that will deliver improved performance with fewer resources. The talk will discuss practical management moves you can take to make dramatic impacts on the performance of your operation.

In the session Brian will share some of the key principles which are common across each of these high performance institutions, how they sustained their high performance, and how you can, in a practical way, adopt the same principles in your own environment to drive performance improvement. The session will close with a Q&A and facilitated discussion amongst the attendees to reinforce the key takeaways regarding performance, leadership, and excellence. At the end of the session you will have fresh insights and new ways of thinking about the challenge of driving performance improvement in your business.
