** Please note this event was originally advertised for 16 May. It is now on Thursday 23 May **

Many directors are feeling outmatched by the ferocity of changing technology, emerging risks, and new competitors. This Director’s Circle will look at governance and the digital age in an address from Stephen Scheeler, former MD & Industry Head at Facebook.

The presentation will be followed by discussion. A light supper and drinks will be provided.

Guest Speaker: 

Stephen Scheeler, The Digital CEO...former Facebook MD for Australia and New Zealand

The world has gone digital, but Australian business risks falling behind. As advisor, mentor and speaker, Stephen partners with Australia's business leaders to help them master digital strategy, culture & leadership, and build innovative, global, billion-dollar businesses.

Stephen is The Digital CEO...the former Facebook MD for Australia and New Zealand, where he guided Facebook’s unprecedented rise from quirky Silicon Valley startup to media and technology titan. 

Working with Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg and Facebook’s Silicon Valley leaders, his tenure at Facebook saw the Australia and New Zealand business – including Instagram, Messenger, Whatsapp and Oculus – grow from mere start up into one of the most successful Facebook markets in the world.

Stephen is a seasoned business leader, with a career spanning over 25 years across consumer products, retail, ecommerce, automotive, financial services, media and technology. 

Today – as founder of global advisory The Digital CEO, Senior Advisor to McKinsey & Company, and Executive-in-Residence at Asia-Pacific’s leading business school, the Australian Graduate School of Management – he partners with the CEOs and boards of some of the world’s leading companies to help them build world-beating strategies, capabilities, culture and leadership. He has advised the leaders of Qantas, nab, Westpac, Macquarie Bank, IAG, Suncorp, Telstra, Wesfarmers, AMP, CUB, Brambles, Google, Seven West Media, MCN, QBE, JB Hi-Fi, Bunnings, Mirvac and the Australian Government.

As a speaker, Stephen has a unique ability to excite audiences on the power of technology, the future of business and the new paradigm of 21st-century leadership. He is an inspiring personality on the highest-profile stages - including TEDx and AMP Amplify - and is a member of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s Knowledge Nation 100, top one hundred innovation leaders in Australia.
