Sessions Agenda

Session 2

The Oldest Guy at Facebook with Stephen Scheeler.

Stephen Scheeler, Former Facebook CEO for ANZ and self-professed ‘Oldest Guy at Facebook’ will inspire audiences with this keynote focused on entrepreneurship, leading through a digital age and the role millennials play in shaping the workforce of tomorrow.   

Session 3

Data, Due-Diligence, Divergence and Disruption with Macgregor Duncan, Jana Kapr, Narbeh Yousefian, Natalie Nguyen and Darren Hanna as facilitator.

Just as in the 1970s and 1980s technology had to grow into its commercial and managerial maturity, data is now growing in prominence and professionalism. It is an exciting time in the world of data — we stand on the cusp of a new way of doing business, one that will be powered by the information and analytics we have and finding increasingly powerful ways to use data. The financial services sector, like all other digital and data sectors, is changing rapidly. The move to digital technologies, including new regulations and compliance, open source software, and shifting skillsets toward data science and data engineering, are driving significant opportunity in data and analytics. In this session, the panel  will discuss the “growing up” of data as a function and the implications it has for people who work with data. The session will also explore the ways in which the pioneers of industry disrupting start-ups are maximising and leveraging this data 'revolution' to create meaningful, interesting and powerful products.

Session 4

1 hour breakout – select 1 of 4 to attend:

  • Work-Life Transition Tactics: Finding a healthy work-life balance is a difficult challenge at the best of times. Changes in work, such as 24/7 digital connectivity are finding many of us struggling with how to ‘switch off’ from work and ‘show up’ in life (and vice versa). While there are many benefits to this new reality, the costs of work-life conflict can be high. Providing an opportunity to get out of ‘automatic pilot’, this session will unpack 7 ‘Work-Life Transition TACTICS’ designed to help us move from work-life interference towards work-life integration!
  • Hack your Habits: Habits – we all have them, whether we like them or not. Habits can have both positive and negative impacts on our personal and professional lives – we can use them to leverage our productivity and increase our success and satisfaction.  In this session, attendees will learn the theory behind how habits are formed, and broken and how simple techniques can allow us to shift our mindset and change the way we do things to be more productive with the 24 hours we are given each day. 
  • Online Me, Offline Me: Personal and professional branding is critical in a world where role automation is shifting the focus from ‘job title’ to ‘skill set’. Branding is critical both online and offline in this new digital age. This session, led by Matt Tindale, Managing Director of LinkedIn Australia and NZ, will provide clarity to attendees on the power of personal and professional branding and the importance of cultivating and exemplifying a myriad of skills to maximise future career ‘readiness’. 
  • The Science of Influence and Change: Through an understanding of the basics of neuroscience and the psychology behind how our brain responds to changes at work or in our environment, attendees will learn to view change as opportunity rather than a threat through a growth mindset and other easy-to-apply strategies.
Session 5

1 hour breakout – select 1 of 4 to attend:

  • Green for Good: Sustainability was once regarded as a competitive and branding parameter for large corporations, a buzzword that was front of mind but not necessarily prioritised in the boardroom. This panel will unpack the current rhetoric surrounding corporate waste and sustainability and then deep dive into the role that innovation will play in the future of sustainability in Australia and Australian workforces. This session will showcase the link between personal and corporate waste, the role that waste, renewables and technologies of tomorrow will play in the Australian workplaces of the future (waste, renewables, technology) and touch on what is needed to boost the ambition of sustainability in the financial services industry and beyond.
  • Tech for Purpose: Technology has materially changed the way humans interact and help one another. As technological developments across all sectors continue to evolve, the opportunity for individuals use technology to deliver benefits to their community has never been greater. This session will explore how young entrepreneurs, designers and leaders across different industries are embracing technology to drive “for purpose” initiatives. Panellists will demonstrate how their technological innovations are helping society realise positive change and will share their thoughts on the power and capacity of technology to disarm geographic, demographic and social barriers. 
  • Hack your Social Impact: A vibrant and engaged community underpins any prosperous society. While the rise of social media and an increasingly digitised workforce has helped us connect virtually like never before, the need for community engagement and human connection prevails. In this session, attendees will learn from entrepreneurs, leaders and designers who are passionate about driving positive social change in Australian communities. Panellists will discuss how an entrepreneurial approach to social issues can yield the greatest return for the community at large, and explore the strategies they employed to deliver lasting, positive change. This session will reiterate the important work that community-based organisations deliver and challenge attendees to reflect on how they can harness an entrepreneurial mindset to contribute to and drive positive social impact.
  • Shifts in Global Economic Powers, Emerging Technological Disruption and the International Community: There is a global economic power shift at play before our eyes – the rise of new centres of economic activity in the developing world are expediting new patterns of trade and investment. These trends are encouraging innovative businesses to emerge and are prompting governments to rethink opportunities as well as risk. This session will explore the changing contours of the international community as shifts in global economic powers evolve concurrent with emerging technological disruption, and discuss what this means for big business and individuals alike.  
Session 6

Contours of Innovation with Carolyn McCann

Carolyn McCann, Group Executive of Customer and Corporate Relations, and TYN Summit Executive Sponsor provides the penultimate keynote address of TYN Summit Day 1. We explore her career, the way Westpac are innovating to improve customer experience and the role of youth leaders in innovating for progress within the financial services industry and beyond. 

Session 7

Preparing to seize exponential opportunities with Bucky Beyer.

Singularity University is a global learning and innovation community using exponential technologies to tackle the world’s biggest challenges and build a better future for all. Bucky is a Director at Monitor Deloitte and the Sydney Ambassador of Singularity University Sydney Chapter. The purpose of the Sydney chapter is to bring our city, her people, and our team into the global narrative of abundance. As a leading global city Sydney has a robust where yet fragmented innovation agenda, we see our chapter as helping to bring a coherent narrative around innovation, exponentials, and future agendas. We believe the greatest ideas come at the convergence of very different sources. In this keynote, Bucky will explore the latest in exponential technologies and showcase how these technologies are being used to disrupt industries and positively impact the world. Be part of an unforgettable gathering of leaders and change-makers. Explore the exciting convergence of exponential technologies, connect with new people and ideas, and co-create a better world.
