International Sydney Speaker Series continues to foster collaboration
Malloch-Brown addressed an audience of leading international association CEOs, committee members and key decision makers on the topic of Collaborating Locally, Delivering Internationally – a perspective from within the United Nations and World Bank.
He drew on his broad experience in Asia at the UN and with the World Bank on delivering projects in areas where there was a strong need for local engagement and partnerships.
“To generate economic growth, environmental sustainability and social equity we need to recognise the importance of stakeholder engagement and collaboration on a fundamental level,” he said.
The International Sydney Speaker Series, a joint initiative of Business Events Sydney (BESydney) and International Convention Centre Sydney, aims to help associations meet the challenges in the rapidly changing global environment.
“We know that international relationships are key to successful collaboration and innovation,” said Lyn Lewis-Smith, CEO of BESydney.
“On a daily basis, we see the outcomes of people coming together to tackle global issues and create a brighter future. Business events drive economic and social outcomes for the global community.
“If there is one thing I hope participants share in their conversations and strategies today, tomorrow and the day after, it’s that together we can have a lasting impact on society. My team can help bring thought leaders to Sydney to meet to help shape our future.”
