Join ABC News Breakfast presenter, Michael Rowland, as he hosts a panel discussion with prominent industry figures to identify the challenges and opportunities facing global business.
The event is being held at RMIT University on Monday, 27 October and presented by the City of Melbourne as part of Melbourne Knowledge Week (27 October-2 November).
The College of Business at RMIT is bringing together thought leaders from the worlds of finance, technology, energy, social enterprise and the media to explore the theme "Designing Sustainable Business Models."
Held in the state-of-the-art Swanston Academic Building and filmed for ABC Big Ideas, the forum promises to be a lively Q&A-style debate that will forge new ways of thinking and new connections as we consider what it means to be innovative, responsible and economically viable in the world of business today.
