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.

His session will explore a variety of topics including:
*the nature of a crisis and how to recover - restoring trust, rebuilding confidence &
*understanding the relationship between culture, conduct, and compliance
