Success and Leadership breakfast with CGH Group & Harvest Road

Agriculture is WA’s next biggest industry. It is diversifying, innovating and investing as it enjoys an envious growth trajectory based on ever-increasing demand for food and textiles.

Join us for breakfast to hear from our experts, CBH Group’s Ben Macnamara and Harvest Road’s Paul Slaughter, as they share their deep knowledge about the sector, its opportunities and challenges.

Both run organisations are ranked in the state’s top five agribusinesses with combined revenue worth more than $3.9 billion. Between them they employ around 1800 staff and export their produce throughout Asia and beyond.

Ben has leveraged a finance background to become an operational leader at cooperative giant CBH, WA’s biggest agribusiness. He oversaw its world-class storage and handling, logistics and shipping services before becoming chief executive in December 2021.

A high energy, values driven and results-based leader, Paul brought diverse experience in food, beverage and FMCG at big consumer brands before stepping in to run the agricultural assets of the Forrest family’s private investment vehicle Tattarang.

Politics & Policy breakfast with the Hon. Mia Davies MLA

Breakfast event with Keynote speaker and interview with Hon. Mia Davies MLA, Leader of the Opposition

Mia Davies has made history throughout her career, beginning as a minister in the previous Liberal-National government, becoming the first female leader of the National Party in WA (and Australia). More recently she took on the role of Opposition leader, making her the first National Party member to do so since 1947.

Now leading the National-Liberal alliance in opposition following a state election that delivered a massive majority to the government, her team is in uncharted waters as it navigates pandemic politics, electoral reform and the issues that affect the people of WA in these extraordinary times.

Join Mia for breakfast for an insight into these challenges, the opportunities that adversity creates, and why she is determined to keep fighting for all Western Australians to have an equitable voice in Parliament.
