The FEAL DINNER was held on Wednesday 2 March 2016 at the Trilogy Room, Park Hyatt Melbourne.

This year’s guest speaker was Rachael Robertson, one of Australia’s leading speakers who has led teams in the toughest of work places – Antarctica.

This was followed by the FEAL Forum on Thursday, 3rd March 2016 – “Addressing Challenges to create Opportunities ” at the Melbourne Business School.

The Forum is a unique one day program exclusively for fund CEO’s and their senior executive teams. The Forum looked at the challenges the industry faces and how they can be converted into opportunities.

Neil illustrated how a complaint doesn’t always have to be a lose/lose situation for your fund and the member. By using practical guidelines and transparent processes your fund can turn a complaint into a compliment.

The forum also held a discussion on the topic: ‘Should funds have a social conscience?‘ Chaired by Mary McLaughlin from MIESF, Clare Payne from Tobacco Free Portfolios and representatives from HESTA and VicSuper discussed the rising role of the fiduciary and the frameworks funds are using to guide their ESG decision making.

We also heard from a panel of CEO’s and senior executives on ” The CEO as Chief Cultural Officer.”

The day concluded with Holly Ransom, CEO of Emergent Solutions. Holly was the Chair of the 2014 G20 Youth Summit and in 2012 was the youngest person to be named in Australia’s most 100 influential women.
