East Meets West: Business Culture in Rising Asia
East Meets West: Business Culture in Rising Asia

By 2030, Asia is expected to contribute roughly 60% of global growth and is responsible for an overwhelming 2.4 billion new members of the middle class entering the global economy. This bulk of growth will come from the developing markets of China, India and throughout South-East Asia; worth over $9trillion dollars in ASEAN alone. To succeed in these countries, one would need to assimilate and adapt to the cultures of the markets.

To enjoy growth in trade and investment with Asia, developing a constructive relationship with Asian counterparts is crucial. The talk will highlight the major dimensions that differentiate Asian cultures from the West, discuss factors that influence Asian decision makers, and provide practical tips for negotiating successfully and winning deals with Asian counterparts.

The challenges faced by Perth and WA after COVID-19
  • I grew up in Perth's eastern suburbs, spending most of my time in Guildford, Midland & Woodbridge.

  • #funfact Born in 1987, I am the youngest Member of the WA Legislative Assembly.

  • I went to Woodlupine Primary School in Forrestfield and graduated from Governor Stirling Senior High School in Woodbridge in 2004.

  • Dropped out of Murdoch University, before going to work for a W.A. Senator, Judith Adams.

  • Worked for the WA Liberal Party since 2006, eventually becoming the youngest ever Deputy State Director (Campaign Support). I've worked on 14 elections (various state, federal & by-elections) since 2007.

  • Worked as a Principal Policy Adviser for the 29th Premier of Western Australia, the Hon. Colin Barnett, for four and a half years.

  • Spent two and half years with Australia's largest private construction company, BGC, with a focus on financial strategies for the residential and hotel division. Spent the 2015/16 summer on two hotel sites as a concrete form-worker as part of professional development.

  • I was elected to the District of Dawesville in March 2017.

  • I live in central Mandurah

  • In June 2019 I was asked by Liberal Leader Liza Harvey to take the position of Shadow Minister for Health; Mental Health; Innovation & Disruptive Technologies and Manager of Opposition Business. I was also given the portfolio of Aboriginal Affairs in July 2019.

  • I was appointed Deputy Chair of the Education & Health Standing Committee in February 2020 and sit on the Joint Select Committee into Palliative Care in May 2020.

  • In my free time I was training for the Busselton Half Ironman in May 2020 (until COVID) but continue my running and riding training.

Unravelling the Thread of Modern Slavery in the Garment Sector
Unravelling the Thread of Modern Slavery in the Garment Sector

Globally, more than 40 million people are trapped in situations of modern slavery – more than any other time in human history.

Walk Free is an international human rights organisation working to end modern slavery globally within our generation. Walk Free is the producer of the world’s leading dataset on measuring and understanding slavery, and works towards system change through government, business, and faith, to ensure slavery is tackled through both a legal and cultural framework. This presentation will discuss Walk Free’s vital work before providing a deeper look into modern slavery within the garment sector and how our purchasing decisions have a moral impact.
