Our 2019 Regional leadership summit will bring experts, key thinkers and change makers together

Vision of the Region Dinner

Friday 31st May, 6:30pm, Lakeside Hotel, Bendigo

Influential Author Jim Collins argued that “It takes big hairy audacious goals to create game-changing innovations and transformation”

What next big things should be on the drawing board for Regional Victoria? Speakers will share their big hairy audacious goal for the future? and drill down to how they will work…

The power of big hairy audacious goals is that it gets you out of thinking too small. In the 2019 Vision of the Region Dinner – Daring to Dream our speakers will share their wildest goal around the themes of our environment, our people and the next generation.
