What Defines Success in Business? Q&A

This popular event held at the Elisabeth Murdoch Theatre in the historic sandstone campus of the University of Melbourne was a treat to the ears of business professionals interested in the discussion around Benefit Corporations and their potential to harness the power of the private sector for public benefit and to redefine success in business.

Moderated by prominent Melbourne-based journalist Brad Howarth, the panelists included Co-Founder of B Lab Bart Houlahan, leading business identity Carol Schwartz, General Manager of Corporate Responsibility for NAB Paula Benson, and Entrepreneur & Investor Paul Bassat.

This event was organized through a partnership with the Disruptive Business Network, who seeks to bring together the mavericks, the game changers and the revolutionaries to ‘reimagine the value of business’.

The popularity of this event was evident through the re-tweeting of countless topics and quotes by the crowd throughout the discussion, including the discussion around women in leadership roles, and the change towards positive value-driven business ethics. This led to #bisqa reaching the number 3 re-tweeted hash tag in Australia.

Following the event, drinks were held at Jimmy Watson’s Wine Bar in Carlton whereby the conversation was carried on into the misty Melbourne evening.
