2018 Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals Taste of Australia Dinner & Leaders’ Summit

Telling our story with confidence and a winning formula has never been more important.

With trust in business at an all-time low, and the continuing disruption of digital business models, automation and artificial intelligence, co-operatives and mutuals have an historic opportunity to turn the public onto the benefits of the brand.

This is our chance to “tell it like it is”. We explore innovative ideas and campaigns that are achieving cut through with consumers, we examine the power of customer data and how to ‘mine’ it for good, and share best practice in strategies to connect and engage members.
