the code for the new economy


The CODE for the New Economy: Creativity ignites competitiveness; In an Open world there’s no place to hide; Diversity boosts performance; Equity builds long term value.

Narelle Hooper’s agenda-setting presentation outlines the increasingly powerful commercial imperative driving organisations to become creative, open, diverse and fair. 

Examining the evidence and case studies from around the world, Narelle will share how organisations with more women in leadership roles deliver superior performance, innovation and financial returns and tap the ingenuity of their people to tackle our most challenging problems. They show that companies, communities and countries that are more inclusive do better, innovate more, unleash new value and prosper long term.
