Australia currently has record levels of population growth coupled with record levels of job growth. The dollar is down from where it was a decade ago and commodity prices have recovered from their low point a few years ago. There are concerns around digital disruption and future of work yet our employment rates remain low. We are seeing a new wave of infrastructure spending across Australian cities which will be growth drivers over the coming years.

China continues to be a major source of demand for Australian commodities, resources and agribusiness, but is it all about China?

Every way you look at it there are opportunities for further expansion. The question of every CEOs’ mind is how to achieve growth over the next 5 years.

In this episode of Sky News Business – The Next 5 Years, Bernard Salt speaks with CEOs David Elia, Hostplus and Gary Wingrove, KPMG to explore how CEOs are leading for growth and what courageous decisions need to be made to ensure they become the disruptors rather than the disrupted. The discussion included:

  • where opportunities exist for growth for Australian business over the next five years
  • what senior management teams should be doing right now to position their businesses for the early 2020s
  • the importance of our relationship with China
  • what the main enablers are of business success in the future
  • the global business sectors with opportunities for Australian businesses to invest.

We also speak with Lisa Bora, Partner, Customer, Brand & Marketing Advisory, KPMG on customer experience as the new competitive battlefield for growth.
