More Information

Mobile-ising Women in Business, a successful conference series empowering women entrepreneurs will return to Melbourne for the second time on Tuesday, 29 August.

The growth of technology and all it enables is proving to move exponentially faster than predicted, mostly driven by consumer behaviour. The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Victorian Chamber through Biz Better Together are here to deliver Australian business owners the information and tools to be forerunners in their fields of expertise.

During the day we will hear from global influencers and thinkers, experts and people at the forefront of change, who are focussed on the rapid growth of technology and the disruption it brings to businesses, workplaces, individuals and diverse industries.

We will explore the digital innovation frontline as we look at those industries leading the way dynamic evolving workplaces and practices. We will delve into artificial intelligence, augmented reality, robotics and human development, as well as looking at female leadership and entrepreneurship.

Join hundreds of business people to mingle, network, hear case studies from entrepreneurs and business women and take away what every business needs to know about mastering emerging technologies and the 4th industrial revolution. 

Speakers so far include:
