Sessions Agenda
Session 8

Resilience, sacrifice and achieving firsts with Nova Peris OAM.

Nova Peris OAM is Australia's first indigenous woman elected to federal parliament and the first Aboriginal Australian and Northern Territorian to win an Olympic gold medal. In this inspiring keynote, Nova will take us through her incredible career, the successes and challenges she has experienced and inspire audiences on the importance of sacrifice, resilience and backing yourself. 

Session 9

The Land before Avocado with Richard Glover.

'It was simpler time'. We had more fun back then'. 'Everyone could afford a house'. There's plenty of nostalgia right now for the Australia of the past, but what was it really like? Drawing on his recent book, The Land Before Avocado, Richard Glover, journalist and ABC Talk Show Host will take us on a journey to an almost unrecognisable Australia. It's a vivid portrait of a quite peculiar land: a place that is scary and weird, dangerous and incomprehensible, and, now and then, surprisingly appealing. Richard will draw on the enormous strides that Australia has made, how we should be proud of what we've achieved and what we can learn from our past in order to innovate and elevate the future of Australia. 

Session 10

1 hour workshop – select 1 of 4 to attend:

  • Productive in a Pickle - Hack your Mindset: Both personally and professionally, we all experience stress and pressure. In this panel discussion, attendees will hear from inspiring individuals who have not only persevered, but flourished in trying circumstances. The session will traverse the topics of how to work efficiently under pressure, how to develop a strategic mindset in high risk and volatile environments and how to focus on a goal, no matter how impossible the odds. With a focus on the diverse career experiences of the panellists, this session will help attendees ‘hack’ their own mindset, and  to ensure they remain ‘productive in a pickle’.
  • A Trying Time for Trust: In this session, panellists will discuss the importance of trust: how to build, maintain and restore it in volatile environments. The panel will unpack how communities and customers are demanding transparency from companies more than ever before and examine the adaptations needed for competitive advantage in this environment, touching on examples relevant to financial services and beyond.   
  • Leading with Emotional Intelligence: Emotional intelligence underlies our self-awareness, empathy, leadership and resilience. Ina  world where the number of people we work with on a daily basis has multiplied, the ability to understand and harness human emotions is critical to success. In this session, attendees will learn how to harness your own emotions and those of others to enhance decision making, improve behaviour and facilitate high performance.  
  • Youth Leadership across industries: Leadership is challenging no matter how senior you are. These challenges are compounded further when you are the youngest voice in a room. In this session, we invite panel members to share with attendees their experiences as young leaders and how they have harnessed the power of innovation, design thinking and divergent thought to become industry leaders in their chosen fields. The session will explore how individuals can turn ideas or passions into a career or business, with panel members being invited to share any obstacles they had to overcome in the pursuit of their ideas. 
Session 11

Reflection Session: Build your Innovation Toolkit with Luke Hannan.

In this 35-minute power session, Luke Hannan will facilitate a TYN Summit first – a reflection session with the aim for attendees to ‘build’ an innovation toolkit of their own. Luke will poignantly direct questions at a personal, table and room level, to ensure attendees reflect on their individual learnings over the past two days and hone in on what they are going to ‘take back’ to their day jobs. This will also act as an opportunity for attendees to hear about the breakout sessions they did not attend, maximising learnings across the two days for all attendees.  

Session 12

Integrate to Innovate: Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Technology with Adam Jacobs, May Lam, Lauren Capelin, Angela Clark and Rob Jarrett as facilitator.

Essentially, the vision we have for this panel is to outline that there are many different things that make a successful business tick – employees with entrepreneurial mindset, innovative thought leadership and of course cutting edge technology, business strategy and vision. Our aim is for our attendees to hear from some of Australia’s most dynamic entrepreneurs and thought leaders who have circumvented traditional industries to create innovative, valuable and thoughtful products and services that speak to the constantly changing needs and demands of customers. We are keen for the panel to unpack their personal career journeys, reflecting on how entrepreneurship in the 21st century must extend beyond a job description, title or career journey because arguably, entrepreneurship is a mindset, a way of operating and most importantly, an attitude. The focus on technological innovation will also be a key component of the discussion, as we are keen for attendees to understand how Beem It, The Iconic, Hatch, Assembly Payments and Reinventure have harnessed innovative technology and the changing business/consumer landscape to create successful and viable businesses. 

Session 13

Preparing now for whats next with Michael McQueen

Michael McQueen is a multi award winning trend forecaster, author and speaker. In this keynote, Michael will inspire attendees and leave them with an action plan for navigating the disruptive industry trends of our time. Michael will explore the five impending disruptions that most leaders and organisations are ignoring at their peril (financial services and beyond), how to foster the mindset and culture required to drive innovation and agility within a team and the key habits and strategies that separate the enduring from the endangered.
