“This is a time of incredible technical change that presents unprecedented opportunities for positive change, but which also presents huge challenges,” said Influencing CEO Phil Sim.


“Journalists and analysts have such an important role in presenting the myriad of issues surrounding these changes, and TechLeaders offers them the chance to step back from the day-to-day reporting grind and look at the bigger picture and build new connections and sources.”


The event starts at 11:30am on Sunday at the Fairmont Resort in the Blue Mountains.
