Diversification Symposium powered by MAX - 12/2/20

Diversification Symposium powered by MAX - 12/2/20
On the back of the recent KPMG ´Sustainability of Queensland clubs’ report, Clubs Queensland is bringing you a Diversification Symposium. Clubs are finding it increasingly challenging to remain competitive, let alone fulfil their community obligations which are growing at an equally rapid pace - the need for our community clubs to be sustainable has never been more important.

This one-day seminar is set to provide attendees with industry know-how and expertise to look outside the box and take advantage of asset diversification, new marketing and product ideas, and build commercial acumen in order to stay sustainable. We’ll identify some potential diversification options and strategies available to clubs, whilst also highlighting some of the best and most innovative strategies from local and interstate clubs.

If you aren’t able to attend in person, you can stream the event from your computer. When booking, please ensure you choose the webcast option.
