Unlocking the Potential in Australia and Asia

On October 18th, 2.00PM, we are delighted to be hosting Norman Gray AM, former CEO of Thales Australia, and CEO of award winning Box Hill Institute, at the Engine Shed in Bristol.


Mr Gray will deliver a speech focussing on innovation in Australia, and the wider Asian region, and will discuss what this could mean for UK organisations.

With 24 years of uninterrupted economic growth, Australia is now the fifth largest economy in the Asia-Pacific region, and the 12th largest economy in the world. Australia’s GDP per capita make its citizens among the world’s top 5 wealthiest.

In 2015, The Australian Government embarked on a $1.1bn innovation drive, and combined with the high probability that the first UK Free Trade deal post Brexit will be with Australia, its exactly the right time for UK based organisations to explore opportunities in Australia.

Mr Gray’s presentation will also cover economic development priorities in Victoria including:

  • Medical technologies and pharmaceuticals
  • Renewable energy technologies
  • Food and fibre
  • Transport and defence
  • Construction technologies
  • International education
  • Precision manufacturing
