Future Perth podcast: Episode 6

The final episode of the Business News Future Perth podcast is now available, looking at the future of the Western Australian economy.

The guests for this episode are Wesfarmers chief executive Rob Scott and PwC partner Justin Carroll.

Produced in conjunction with the Committee for Perth, and based around some of the research the independent think-tank has produced over the past 15 years, each episode will focus on a particular aspect of Perth’s future.

The first episode, which was released in October, looked at people's perceptions of Perth and considered ways in which they may be changed. Those involved in the conversation were Perth Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas, Perth Airport chief executive Kevin Brown and Ipsos Australia and New Zealand Global Reputation Centre director Sally Braidwood.
