Keynote Speaker
Michael Smith, Chairman of 7-Eleven, Starbucks & Pioneer Credit

As the industry looks to repair its reputation after the Royal Commission, organisations face the challenge of restoring trust and redefining culture in order to rebuild consumer confidence across the sector. Michael will provide insight into his experience as Chairman of 7-Eleven where he observed the company restore its sector-leading status, share growth and profitability after a highly visible crisis. His session will explore a variety of topics including:

*the nature of a crisis and how to recover - restoring trust, rebuilding confidence &
redefining culture
*understanding the relationship between culture, conduct, and compliance
*how regulators, legislators and the media work with public opinion
*a model for industry evolution that is sustainable
*the limitations of supposedly best practice governance models.
