Architecture and Opportunity of The Queensland Plan, Queenslanders' 30-year Vision


On behalf of the Graduate Management Association of Australia, Queensland President David Morgan invites you to a private Boardroom Briefing with Member of Parliament Verity Barton.  The Queensland Plan will be discussed, with particular emphasis on how your business can take advantage of this 30 year strategic plan.  

This event is strictly limited to just 15 people, and will provide attendees with an opportunity to get ahead of their competition by spending valuable time with an architect of the Queensland Plan. Please register your attendance.



The Queensland Plan, Queenslanders' 30-year Vision

Take advantage of attending an intimate boardroom briefing by a Member of Parliament to learn about the architecture and opportunity of The Queensland Plan, Queenslanders' 30-year Vision.

More than 80,000 people contributed to the development of The Queensland Plan, making it the largest community activity of its kind in Queensland's history.  The Plan reflects our shared vision for the next 30 years and establishes a roadmap for future growth and prosperity.

Everyone - governments, business, industry, community groups and individuals - can benefit and contribute, whether it be through a community action plan, a statement in your corporate plan, or even a personal decision to learn a new language or exercise more.

During this boardroom briefing you will learn about the nine foundations that form the plan and how to better position your business to take advantage of the strategic direction of the state over the next 30 years.

This interactive forum will help businesses (big and small), government agencies, not-for-profit organisations and the community understand how each group can work in harmony to deliver prosperity across society.

Creating Shared Value is a management strategy focused on creating measurable business value by identifying and addressing social problems that intersect with the business. It was first implemented by Bendigo and Adelaide Bank in 1998 through its Community Bank model, in response to the wave of bank branch closures sweeping Australia.

It is based on the Shared Value Initiative, founded by Harvard Professor, Michael E. Porter.

What you'll learn

Our expert panel will provide insights into:

  • Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's Shared Value Community Bank model

  • how to increase business growth through customer and community connections

  • how to create and implement a sustainable Shared Value strategy

  • how to manage key stakeholder relationships with the community

  • challenges in delivering Shared Value.

Professional Development Seminar: Your social media strategy

For brands of all sizes, social media presents an unique opportunity to start one-on-one conversations with customers. However, for every successful campaign, the road is littered with social failures. Discover who’s doing it right, who’s doing it wrong - and how you could be doing it better.

Following the success of the recent Griffith Business School Alumni Network business breakfast, Andy Fyffe and his team from Khemistry return to host a professional development seminar on a number of key learnings that have come from Australian and international social media campaigns this year.

Andy is a gifted marketing strategist and account director with a blend of high-level government, corporate, and agency experience. He manages the creative, strategy, and account service teams at Khemistry, an independent agency he co-founded and which now services major brands including Mantra Hotels, Virtus Health, Ergon Energy, TAFE Qld, and Brisbane City Council. Prior to establishing Khemistry he was a speech writer and liaison officer for several Queensland Government Ministers, and also worked in business analyst roles at Volvo Australia and James Hardie. Andy holds a Bachelor of Business (Griffith) as well as a Graduate Certificate in Business Administration (QUT).

Want to learn more? Join Andy and the Griffith Business School Alumni Network for this professional development seminar.

Your investment includes a 2.5 hour workshop and a light supper.
