The LBG Annual Conference will take place on Tuesday 15 November in Melbourne and is shaping up to be our best ever event. This year’s theme ‘Leading the world in corporate community investment’ will include a range of impressive expert speakers, thought leaders and engaging panel discussions.

A sneak peek of the highlights include:

  • Guest speaker Mr Mike Tuffrey, Co-Founding Director, Corporate Citizenship will be joining us in person from the United Kingdom to talk about his extensive international experience and trends overseas in corporate community investment
  • Guest speaker Ms Alice Cope, Executive Manager, UN Global Compact will lead a discussion on sustainable development goals including details of case studies and how members are using them
  • The LBG team will present the findings from the ‘State of CCI Survey’ findings and launch the 2016 annual results.

In addition to this we will also hear from a number of other speakers and LBG members who will present a range of case studies on innovative strategies and trends from within their businesses.

All members are encouraged to attend and not miss out on this fantastic event. We are also encouraging our members to bring colleagues to the conference (please note there is a maximum of five guests per member). Non-members are also welcome to attend for a small fee.
