Navigating Perth’s New Political Landscape

Boardroom Briefing

Join Committee for Perth for our upcoming Boardroom Briefing: Navigating Perth’s New Political Landscape on Tuesday, 15 August 2023.

ReGen Strategic executive chair and founder Daniel Smith will join us for a private lunch to share his insights on how the political landscape has changed since former Premier Mark McGowan’s shock resignation on June 8.

As a long-time friend of new Premier Roger Cook and with extensive experience in the private sector, government and political campaigning, Daniel will provide a valuable analysis of the Cook Government’s priorities, leadership style and direction, including important new legislation.

This event will be hosted by KPMG Australia partner Brad Cuff and held under Chatham House Rule, allowing attendees to have a candid discussion about the issues affecting their business and Perth’s future.

We hope you can join us for this important discussion.
