There has been a rush of M&A corporate activity in the Boardrooms of WA’s agricultural companies recently and the attempted takeover of Grain Corp by ADM in the East Coast has revitalised the foreign ownership debate in Australia. However, the challenges for Boards and Directors in this sector are not unique.

Issues confronting boards in any sector might include;
Global versus local
Competition both within Australia and abroad
Inward investment from overseas companies
How to value to our exports to Asia
Infrastructure
Regulatory concerns and ACCC regulations
Productivity and R&D investment.

Join us to hear from a panel of highly experienced Directors who will discuss how their Boards grapple with some of these challenges and bring their perspective and insights to the discussion about how to become a better Board.

Speakers

Andrew Crane GAICD, Managing Director (CEO), Cooperative Bulk Handling
