EVENTS HIGHLIGHTING THE CO-OPERATIVE AND MUTUAL SECTOR AND ITS MANY BENEFITS
The BCCM’s CEO Summit is the only leadership event uniting C-Suite attendees from organisations across this diverse sector. We welcome 140 CEOs, senior managers, chairs and directors from the top 100 co-operative and mutual businesses in Australia, along with political representatives, leading journalists, researchers and consultants. The Summit has sold out every year since it started in 2014.
Designed as a thought leadership forum, our members share ideas, network and discuss best practice at a series of closed door CEO roundtables where the attendees challenge prevailing norms and explore new ways of doing business. Delegates enjoy plenary sessions and panel discussions which feature international and national speakers.
With the renowned “Taste of Australia” Industry Dinner that opens the Summit, this is the sector’s signature annual event incorporating the highly popular “Breakfast on the Hill”, Chairs’ Forum and offsite tours .
The Summit theme for 2019 is ‘Growth and opportunity for CMEs in the era of accountability‘
In the 90’s Porter and Kramer brought the world 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 redemption. Businesses are throwing their all and their budgets at the idea of measuring the shared value creation of enterprise.
Australian CMEs are ahead of the curve with a ground breaking research into Mutual Value Measurement. Led by a an international team of researchers in partnership with the sector, the project has set itself the audacious goal of designing a single but customisable methodology to measure the total value creation of co-operatives and mutuals.
The 2019 BCCM Leaders’ Summit will be the platform for the global launch of the million dollar MVM Research Project and the opportunity to discuss and debate competitive strategies for co-ops and mutuals to measure what matters.
