Join this stimulating session as Ai Group Chief Executive, Innes Willox, questions the heads of two of Australia's leading companies about their views on the state of skills in Australia.

Karen Dobson, Managing Director, Dow Australia & New Zealand and Jeff Connolly, Chairman and CEO, Siemens Australia New Zealand, will offer their opinions on the changes needed to ensure the nation has the right skills for industry as we embrace future challenges and change.

A cocktail of factors is currently converging to create an urgency to skills formation and development in Australia. Research on the changing workplace is showing that the nature of work is evolving. Does this mean we need different education and training approaches? Should we be immersing learning in work environments? How should industry and education sector collaboration change to facilitate the right skills development?

Hear how three of Australia’s leaders envision skills formation and development to meet the needs of enterprises and individuals into the future.
