The keynote speaker and panellists will explore the new wave of learning opportunities that address the skills gap in line with rapidly advancing technology.


Keynote speaker: Nikki Moeschinger, Managing Director, BrandOpus

Topic: Creativity, Spirituality and Human Purpose at the Dawn of AI 

This presentation will examine the importance of creativity on the future of humanity.

We will look backwards and forwards simultaneously to understand our place in a world on the cusp of momentous change, change more profound than the industrial revolution or the birth of the world wide web.  We will examine the importance of fostering creativity in the workplace and how crucial it will be for today’s leaders to undo some of the psychological damage done by social media with regards to risk taking.

We will see how the education system has it so terribly wrong.

We will talk about the overwhelming effects of technology in our everyday lives and the need to redefine human purpose once many of our roles become automated..

Panel Topic: How do we attract talent to our industry and address the skills needs of the future?

Panellists:  Liza Vernalls, Packaging Director, Campbell Arnott's; Nerida Kelton, Executive Director, Australian Institute of Packaging; Dr Rym Kachouri, Product Manager Packaging Technologies, Foodmach

Panel Moderator: Lindy Hughson, Publisher, PKN Packaging News | Food & Drink Business

You don’t have to be a woman to attend; everyone is welcome.
