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.
