Show me the Business Case!

PRELIMINARY NOTICE - Explore 'Career Management in Turbulent Times' through the lens of being strategically opportunistic with our career decision making. Discuss what this can look like from both an individual and an organisational/leader's perspective.

Sure, it’s a great idea… but how to convince the bean counters? It’s time to bring out the big guns!

You may have come up with a great idea that will significantly increase productivity or you need additional resources to meet new customer expectations. Whatever the challenge, if you are competing for limited resources in a commercially-focused business environment, you need a powerful business case for change. Where do you start?

Commercial Acumen and Financial Literacy are the big guns when it comes to knowing which commercial levers you need to push, and what financial terminology you need to understand and use to be heard.

Join NAWO at CHEP Australia for a Quick Bite event, where their astute and financially savvy speakers: Andrea Davis – Director Retail, Roheen Ali – Financial Controller, Louise Hendry – Director Commercial Services and Ljiljana Celic – Director Process Engineering APAC, will share their experiences and different perspectives. Learn how to:

  • Develop a compelling commercially focused business case
  • Understand the financial terminology required to attract attention
  • Gain a better understanding of different stakeholder expectations.

The presentation will be followed by an interactive case study where you will perform your own analysis of a business case and decide if it passes the test! Don’t miss this opportunity to develop your Commercial Acumen and Financial Literacy in a friendly and supportive environment.
