NEA Emerge Meet Up is not about feeling dwelling on negativity, it’s about putting in place positive actions to rebuild and regrow along with taking on the challenges head on and putting solutions and plans in place. The Challenge of Change is long established and previously successful strategies, practices and ways of working have become marginalised and compromised, we need to emerge and meet the new era of exhibitions and events. We have selected a leading group of speakers from KPMG Restructuring Specialists, Business Coaches through to Gold Medal Olympians to present throughout the day. Topped off with networking and reconnection, it’s time to EMERGE and Meet Up in May.
The definition of Emerge is appropriate as our theme – to rise and become apparent or prominent – We were a leading industry creating jobs, business and connections locally and globally and as the country emerges so must we!
The event will be hosted at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park. As platinum sponsors they are proud to host the event helping lead the recovery having successfully delivered the biggest event in the world since the industry stopped for Covid. The calibre of speakers and inclusions would not be possible with the very generous sponsorship of all the companies listed online.
