Many businesses struggled to survive 2020 and many did not make it through the year. Redundancies, stand downs, significant loss of revenue and operations being shut down are just some of the business crisis issues many companies faced. So what does it take to lead a Global business through a pandemic?
Join us for lunch on Thursday 10 June and hear from one of Australia’s most well-known and recognised business leaders, Alan Joyce AC, CEO of the Qantas Group. In an open discussion Alan will share with us the business challenges and lessons he has faced in his role over the last 12 months as well as what the future looks like for Qantas and the plan to survive aviation’s biggest-ever crisis.
Alan Joyce was appointed the CEO and Managing Director of Qantas Airways in 2008. Since then he has led the company to dizzying heights of growth in the incredibly turbulent airline industry. However, since March 2020, Qantas’s international operations have all but entirely ceased and the unpredictable domestic market has run at significantly reduced capacity, with domestic borders regularly slamming shut. No other industry has been impacted as much as the aviation industry during this pandemic.
Alan and his executive team have been implementing a recovery plan to steer the national carrier through the crisis, which has included tough decisions on jobs, close management of cash, equity and debt raisings and preparing for the resumption of international travel.
So what does the future of Australia’s aviation industry look like? Please join us for this exclusive event to find out.
