ACBC Victoria: Annual Education Forum

03 July 2019

CPA Australia, Level 20, 28 Freshwater Place, Southbank, Victoria

ACBC Victoria invites you to attend our 13th Annual Australia China Business Council Education Forum

The theme of this year’s forum is about two important issues relating to Australia’s international education sector. 

  • How can Australian education institutions adapt and respond? With the ever more competitive international education market environment, Brexit, and the changing USA-China relationship, what changes may we expect in terms of future demand, particularly from the increasingly discerning Chinese segment? Are we, as education providers and business organisations, prepared for servicing this sector?
  • How can we strengthen our value proposition by making students more employable upon graduation?

Our speakers include experts with deep knowledge of this market, professionals and former international students who understand, through their own experience and observations, what the market demand is. 

  • The Hon Phil Honeywood, National Executive Director, International Education Association of Australia
  • Mr Wa Zong, Education Director, Chinese Embassy Canberra
  • Dr Simon Eassom, Executive General Manager, Member Education, CPA Australia
  • Ms Laura Matiazzi, Regional General Manager, Northern Victorian, Westpac Agribusiness
