Welcome back Simon Kuestenmacher

We are pleased to announce global data management and insights expert Simon Kuestenmacher, Co-Founder of The Demographics Group and columnist with The Australian is our keynote speaker for 2021. Simon was one of our most popular and engaging speakers when he first shared his insights into what data can tell us and how to use it to advantage in 2018. Simon returns in 2021 to guide us through an exploration of the global trends shaping Australia now, how consumer values in post-COVID Australia are changing, and creating opportunities for regional Australia.

Simon will be joined by speakers who are experts in assessing global trends, identifying the sweet spots and leveraging change to forge new paths forward. Topics they will cover include:

  • Global and national supply chains - key issues, key solutions
  • Export insights - market opportunities and trends
  • Cyber security and resilience
  • Automation - panel discussion with food industry professionals who have been there, done that and will tell you where the traps are
  • The future of food - what will food in 2050 look like?
