Anyone interested in the growing life sciences industry should not miss the Company Directors Conference 2002 – Catch the Future.
Professor Jonathan West of Harvard University, who inspired delegates at this years event in Hobart during an impromptu breakfast session, has confirmed he will be a keynote speaker at the conference. Professor West, who was involved in the mapping of the human genome, will provide provocative insights on the implications of this technology for business. Taking another view of the future, Professor David Henderson, former chief economist of the OECD and visiting professor at the University of Westminster, will debate with a panel of experts on what constitutes 'responsibility' for businesses today. Does corporate social responsibility have a place in the boardrooms of the 21st century, and if so how can this possibly be balanced with the responsibilities to shareholders and stakeholders? And so that tomorrow's companies can learn from the actions of today, delegates will be treated to the popular "Tales from the Corporate Battlefield". Mark Mezrani, former chief executive of Wine Planet Holdings; Eric Dodd, former CEO of NRMA; and David Skellern, former managing director of Radiata, will share their battle stories with us.
Catch the Future will be held at the Sheraton Mirage Gold Coast and Palazzo Versace May 15-17, 2002. For more information or to pre-register an interest, contact Anita Sawa on 02 8234 3333 or e-mail asawa@ companydirectors.com.au
