 “Australia's Future Workforce


The GMAA Conference provides Australia's current and future industry leaders as well as business school academics the forum for sharing their knowledge and ideas that will shape Australia's future leaders.

Much has been written about the demise of manufacturing in Australia, the demise of the mining industry and the need for innovation. 


  • What is the impact of the demographic changes?

  • How will technology change the nature of work?

  • What is government's role in developing the enabling environment for industry to prosper?

  • What are the social impacts of not responding to the challenge?

  • Is innovation the key to unlocking the future potential or, is it an easy "catch cry" for governments

These and more questions will be answered by a panel of leading academics and business leaders.
