Out There Summit 2017

On the back of last year’s success, the Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue is proud to present another stellar line-up of leaders at Out There 2017 across government, business, community, property, sport, tourism and the arts to debate the key issues in Western Sydney.

Headlined by NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, who will outline her vision for the region via the Lachlan Macquarie Lecture, Out There will also feature Federal Cities Minister Angus Taylor, NSW Opposition Leader Luke Foley and other speakers.

This year’s Summit will examine how public policy and private investment needs to meet growth, it will review major projects, recognise achievement and showcase the region’s future leaders & artistic talent.

With our population set to explode over the coming decades, our program looks beyond today’s ‘catchup’ philosophy, to encourage our region’s key stakeholders, opinion leaders and decision-makers, to debate how their future plans will cater for tomorrow’s generation.
