Firmly established as the singular agenda-setting event for Australia’s corporate public affairs and communication community, the Corporate Affairs Summit is returning in June with renewed ambition to build business resilience.

As our operating environment corrects, the Summit presents an enviable opportunity for the nation’s Corporate Affairs and Communication leaders to connect, combat shared challenges, and leverage opportunities emerging from the upturn economy.

• The Corporate Affairs Summit secures national and global speakers of unmatched quality and immense authority. Our attendees are charged with shaping the conversation, armed with an array of real-time engagement tools.
• Every session is independently moderated to facilitate candid discussion and debate, and the programme is designed to provide attendees with valuable opportunities to connect in-person on the business that matters.
