    CACC presents the C2 EXPERIENCE!

    C2 have reinvented how we experience conferences. CACC are delighted to partner with this Canadian organisation to explore the questions of disruption and innovation. This is a panel discussion, but not as you know it. You will experience a taster of the innovative approach that C2 have created to challenge our assumptions of the corporate event. You will be involved; not as a passive observer, but as a part of the dialogue.

    Opportunity resides in uncertainty - a conversation about the importance of innovation and embracing disruption in the midst of the 4th industrial e-revolution.

    C2’s "raison d'être" is to transform the way people think about the role of creativity in business. And in turn, how this creativity leads to innovative, actionable ideas to meet the ever changing challenges of modern times. In this exclusive breakfast event tailored for CACC members and Melbourne business community we explore trends, opportunities, disruptions and major shifts on the horizon.

    C2 designs the perfect playground for reinvented collaborations. Participants from diverse industries and disciplines come out feeling re-energised and retooled to take on what’s coming next.

    We encourage you to register for this event if you are looking for a new way to network, engage and explore ideas that will make a difference in your working world.


    7:30AM - Check-In/Networking (coffee/breakfast served)

    7:55AM - Opening Remarks

    8:05AM - Experiential Panel Discussion


    In a collaborative environment specifically designed to provoke collisions and spark new ideas, C2 inspires participants across all industries to challenge their biases, shift their perspective and explore completely new ways of doing business.

    9:40AM - Key Takeaways




    Martin Enault, CEO-Asia Pacific, C2

    An executive with over 15 years of experience in entrepreneurship and events, Martin is known for creating innovative concepts involving business, entertainment and technology. As C2’s Chief Operating Officer, he now leads the company’s day-to-day operations, and oversees its business, technological and operational development.

    Michele Levine, CEO, Roy Morgan

    Michele Levine was born with a passion for people and what makes them tick, social justice and an insatiable curiosity about life.

    With over 30 years’ experience as a researcher, Michele has been responsible for thousands of surveys, including many of the largest research projects ever undertaken in Australia, many of which continue to play a critically important part in shaping our society today.

    With a fundamental belief in the empowering value of information, Michele was instrumental in the development and refinement of Roy Morgan Single Source, the world’s leading consumer study (based on over 50,000 interviews a year) and, in 2010, the introduction of the Roy Morgan Business Survey.

    Michele was ahead of her time in foreseeing the exponential growth of Big Data and, consequently the need for software (like ASTEROID) which can manage and order massive volumes of data – as well as the need for highly trained analysts who can help make sense of it. (LinkedIn)

    It’s not a matter of if, but when a cyber incident may occur. Businesses across Australia and Canada are taking the necessary steps to ensure they are prepared for a cyber attack or data breach.

    Earlier this year, the Australian Government implemented new legislation that requires businesses to report incidents that expose personal data. These new laws require Australian and Canadian companies doing business in Australia to publicly report incidents that involve breaches of sensitive personal information.

    Understanding what it means to be ready for a cyber incident can help your organisation prevent, prepare and respond to a potential threat. It also means that you can minimise damage to your organisation’s reputation and profitability.

    Australia continues to be recognised as a cyber security leader and the CACC is pleased to be able to present a panel of industry experts who will help you to better understand the Australian cybersecurity landscape.

    This event will be of particular interest to individuals from small, medium and large enterprises that are looking to better understand cyber security best practices in Australia.

    Some 15 years later, the Kasada team are leveraging the same characteristics to disrupt the web application security market. Backed by Australia’s most influential venture capital firms, the Kasada team have set out to redefine the way organisations secure their web applications. Nick leads the company's business building in Australia and is on the speed dial of many business owners.

    Cannabis is a growing industry in Australia. Are you curious about access, its impact on chronic pain sufferers and the economy? CACC proudly presents representatives from Australia’s agriculture, health, and industry sectors who will participate in a lively panel discussion. Keynote Speaker, Mrs. Jaala Pulford, Minister for Agriculture and the Minister for Regional Development will open up the discussion - a night not to be missed!

    This event will be of particular interest to:

    • Business professionals or organisations looking to build links with the agriculture, health, and industry and keen to understand the economic and bilateral exchanges happening between Canada and Australia,

    • The medical health-sector and industry community wanting to build a wider network and partnership, and

    • Canadian and Australian legal and financial professionals seeking a better understanding of the current regulatory framework and what it means for the future of Australia.

    Canada has been a major advocate for and player in the medicinal and commercial developments of cannabis. In contrast, Australia is at the early stages of decriminalisation of cannabis, conducting health based medicinal trials to support chronic pain sufferers as well as people living with epilepsy, and some of cancers. At the same time, private enterprises are being established to foster commercialisation. While the Australian market remains rather niche, it presents immense potential for collaboration between agriculture, health, and industry in creating a healthy ecosystem.
