CBE alumni event: What can we learn from recent corporate failures?

What we can learn from recent corporate failures

The ANU College of Business and Economics (CBE) warmly invites you to attend this event for alumni and friends in Melbourne with guest speaker Phil Ruthven.

The recent spate of corporate failures, both from a financial and ethical standpoint, has provided businesses with a plethora of opportunities to improve. Please join CBE alumni and friends as we discuss what you should take-away from these failings and what they mean for business practices moving forward.

About the guest speaker:

Phil Ruthven is widely considered the nation’s most respected strategist and futurist on business, social and economic matters. He founded the Ruthven Institute in 2017 to help business managers and students to better understand the keys to success and provide the vital information needed to achieve forward planning, effective business strategy and consistent world’s best practice profitability.

Phil is also the founder and owner of IBISWorld, an international corporation providing online business information, forecasting and strategic services, as well as the director of other companies, advisory boards and charitable organisations.

He was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia in 2014 for his services to business and the community, and is currently a board member of the ANU College of Business and Economics Advisory Board.
