What is DELF OZ virtual 2020?
The Digital Entrepreneur’s Leadership Forum (DELF) is a thought leader’s event which has been running since early 2000 in Hong Kong at the Cyberport digital technology science park. In 2020, New Ventures Australia is excited to announce our partnership with international thought leadership event producer Hal Josephson of MediaSense in order to host a DELF conference in Australia and to attract global industry experts in the digital technology and investment sectors to Brisbane, Queensland.
However, as a result of the Covid-19 crisis, we are pivoting proactively to respond to the unprecedented & completely different global business landscape. Given that live face-to-face events are not possible at this time, we have created the DELF OZ virtual webinar series to deliver inspirational online events to Queensland’s and Australia’s network of business leaders, innovation change agents and entrepreneurs.
To launch the webinar series we have invited international future-of-work specialist Gary Bolles. Gary’s latest newsletter launched to help global companies, SME’s, as well as start-ups, management and employee’s world-wide, better understand the local, regional and global economic impact of the current C-19 crisis.
