Mr Tanner will share his insights on the Australian political and financial landscape and the implications local and global factors have on Australian businesses and industries. Interest rate and Australian dollar fluctuations, recent Federal election results, and the influence of major global political leaders on important trade relationships make for a very interesting presentation.
