Business Wise 2016
WHAT WE CREATED
Held in Sydney in July 2016, the inaugural Business Wise was a half-day symposium featuring five major speakers reflecting on the future of business and the power of emotional intelligence.
This conference format presented by The School of Life is returning in September 2017, this time with events in both Melbourne and Sydney.
