The theme of the 2019 Summit was: Growth and opportunity for CMEs in the era of accountability. The Summit included the launch of the million-dollar MVM Research Project – discuss and debate competitive strategies for co-operatives and mutuals to measure total value creation.

The Summit incorporated the renowned Taste of Australia Industry Dinner and annual BCCM Honour Roll recognising outstanding leadership, as well as the highly popular Breakfast on the Hill, Chairs’ Forum and an offsite tour. 40 speakers and 150 delegates.

About the theme

In the 90’s, Harvard professors Michael Porter and Mark Kramer introduced the radical idea of shared value. Now, in the wake of the disruption of the institutional and business misconduct scandals, businesses are faced with the challenge of redress and differentiation. Consumers expect accountability. Businesses are throwing their all at measuring the shared value they create. Australian CMEs are ahead of the curve with ground-breaking research into member value accounting. The Mutual Value Measurement© Project, led by an international team of researchers in partnership with the sector, designed customisable methodology to measure the total value creation of co-operatives and mutuals. The 2019 BCCM Leaders’ Summit launched the million-dollar Mutual Value Measurement© Research Project, providing delegates with the opportunity to discuss and debate competitive strategies for co-operatives and mutuals to leverage differentiation for competitive advantage.

Program highlights included

  • Global launch of mutual value accounting framework
  • Co-operative lifecycle theory
  • Armchair conversation The Hon. Julie Bishop
  • Dealing with takeovers – lessons from AMP
  • Optimising productivity through diversity and inclusion
  • Who owns culture? Governance in the post-Hayne
  • Data governance – the new battle front
