Leaders' Lunch with Raymond O'Flaherty

The next of a new series of premium events for our Corporate Members and Sponsors.


Join us at these invitation-only Business Lunches across Australia, hosted by Chamber President Jeff Doyle, aimed at providing Corporate Members and Sponsors with the opportunity to spend quality time over lunch with fellow business leaders in a private boardroom setting.

You'll gain insights from senior leaders, hear about their challenges, how they've overcome adversity, created success and delivered ambitious plans. No topics are off the table, and there will be a chance for questions from all present, under Chatham House rules.

It's a great opportunity to build your senior network across cities and sectors, spending time with decision makers from some of Australia's leading businesses and organisations.
