The PCO Association has announced seven of the eight speakers who will feature at its annual conference and exhibition, set to take place at the MCEC between December 9 and 11. PCO Association president Barry Neame said the speakers represent a diverse group of achievers who will address many of the uncertainties conference and meeting planners face. With a line-up ranging from a former Facebook CEO to a toilet paper company founder, we have to say we agree.

The featured speakers include:

Belinda Bronson, who have the audience ‘tuning in’ to leverage their leadership capacity by moving away from autopilot modes of operation.

Andrew Eikmeier, who will impart the knowledge he gained from quitting university, struggling with music and acting careers and overseeing five failed businesses before founding successful startup Vinomofo.

Tomer Garzberg, who will discuss the limitations, opportunities and importance of machine intelligence in the workplace.

Samanatha Gash, who will outline her methodology in tackling giant goals in uncertain environments.

Simon Griffiths, who will discuss ‘Who Gives a Crap’, the toilet paper company he founded that uses 50 per cent of its profits to help build toilets in the developing world.

Robbie Mack, who will take participants on an inspiring and courageous journey of personal triumph during difficult times.

Stephen Scheeler, the former CEO of Facebook for Australia and New Zealand, who will take audiences inside the rise of tech giants and the sauce that makes them tick.
