Thought Leadership event

Macquarie Business School's (MBS) Thought Leadership series provides a collaborative platform for engagement with our partners to showcase, explore, and take action on innovative ideas and solutions in response to the ever-changing business environment. The concept of thought leadership is based on the idea of diversity of thought, enabling individuals to embrace new perspectives, regardless of hierarchy or status, and effect change.

Organisations that embrace diversity and new thinking as a strategy for growth represent the essence of market leadership, social accountability, and a new rule of engagement. As thought leaders in research and innovation, the Faculty has a long-standing tradition of synthesizing the very best in academic theory and practical application, delivering expert analysis on economic trends and real-world issues. This has been achieved through a knowledge-sharing approach to an increasingly complex and evolving business landscape.

Through the Thought Leadership series, we have created value for our partners in industry and academia, generating collaborations in research and capacity building.
