EEAA looks at the national landscape at Political Insiders Briefing
Special guests included Matt Hingerty (Barton Deakin); Justin Di Lollo (Hawker Britton); Jenny Lambert (Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry); and John Bartolotta (Royale Limousines) who spoke of the current political and policy landscape in the session moderated by EEAA chief executive Joyce DiMascio.
“So much of the business environment in which our sector works is directly impacted by the mood of the nation and this is directly influenced by what’s going on in Australian politics,” DiMascio said.
“At the briefing we heard about the current mood in Canberra and the state-of-play after 12 months under the leadership of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten.
“Since the recent Federal election, which the Coalition won by the slimmest majority, we have seen major shifts in the tactics around policy reforms – this needs to be watched closely and our Political Insiders lunch provided our industry with insightful analysis on how to interpret what they hear about in the news.”
