What Can You Learn From AFR's Most Innovative Companies?

Wondering what it takes to be one of Australia’s Most Innovative Companies?

In this interactive panel, you’ll get to hear from the winners of the 2018 Australian Financial Review’s Most Innovative Companies list. Moderated by the company that co-creates the AFR Most Innovative Companies list, you’ll hear from leaders at Australia’s top ranking companies into how they have achieved this honour.

Specifically, you’ll hear about:

  • how these companies have deliberately built a culture where innovative thrives
  • the stories behind how their most impactful innovations were developed
  • how these companies keep the customer front and centre
  • the most effective initiatives they have implemented to fuel growth through innovation.

You’ll leave with a bunch of practical insights as to how these companies are consistently innovating their products and services and providing a great workplace for their staff.
