Business Sydney


We trust our Forums stimulate your mind and inspire action as we work together to reshape our City, your business and our lives. 

Our curated forums have been developed to address the critical issues facing business and Sydney.

From exclusive boardroom lunches for our Sydney Firsts members to roundtable and panel discussions, our online and face-to-face programme will stimulate your mind and inspire action as we work together to reshape our city and your business.

See our most recent events here.

Our 2021 Programme addresses the five key areas that support the growth of Sydney as a global city.

What it takes to build a great city from local and state infrastructure, transport and mobility, reform to public spaces and arts and culture.

Key drivers of economic growth, fiscal and monetary policy, finance and funding infrastructure, climate change and Sydney’s 24-hour economy.

Explores issues surrounding changes to how and where we work, labour force dynamics, skills and education and training.
