Sydney 5 Dec – 100 Point Challenge – Game, Race, Quiz

New SACC member – 100 Point Challenge – launch event in Sydney, December 2019.

Join us on 5 December for a networking event with a difference! We’ll be playing the 100 Point Challenge  – a game, a race and quiz. It’s a fantastic way to explore and learn about Sydney’s history and culture. The unique city discovery game involves team problem solving, navigation, and creativity. We will be playing “Bushranger’s Bash”, which is designed for locals, with a focus on The Rocks and Circular Quay area. After the game we’ll gather at a CBD bar to find out who won the game, and for a well-deserved drink.

The 100 Point Challenge was founded by two Australians, Dan Paech and Anna Millan, who currently live in Sweden. The company started in Stockholm in 2016 and has since expanded to Gothenburg, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Sydney. The company is now 21 people globally, and has organised team building events for many of the best known companies in the world, including the likes of Google, Ikea, Spotify and Booking.com.

Perth – Going Green, implications for the Mining Industry with Professor Göran Roos

SACC Perth WA 16 October – Implications for the mining industry when we “go green”

“Implications for the mining industry when we “go green” – Inspiring speech by Prof Göran Roos”

Wednesday 16 October 2019, 5.30pm-8.00pm, at Ernest & Young, Perth CBD

Prof Göran Roos will share for the first time a detailed account of his research around the “implications for the mining industry of moving to a low resource footprint value-creating paradigm”. Every 40-60 years there is a paradigm shift in how value is created in society. Each paradigm transitions through the same phases and usually the Paradigms overlap – which is why some firms or economies “miss the boat” – especially those that were successful in the previous paradigm.

The future low resource paradigm is rapidly becoming a new requirement and intentional decisions need to be made by organizations and governments around the world on which journey to take. The move towards a low resource footprint value-creating paradigm should increase not decrease profitability for the business and prosperity for the economy. In addition, Göran Roos believes that the transition will imply that we will be moving from a petroleum based economy to a metals based economy that will create a huge demand for new critical raw materials such as Dysprosium, Neodymium, Tellurium, Gallium, Indium and Lithium and so forth, many with strong supply limitations. To cater for this demand, new investments, new innovations, and technologies, as well as the implementation of new circular economy recycling will be key success factors in order to transition successfully as individuals, organizations, and societies.

Professor Göran Arne Roos holds a MSc in Engineering Physics from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden; an MBA in Strategy from INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France; an Advanced Postgraduate Diploma in Management Consultancy from Henley Management College in Henley-on- Thames, UK; and a PhD in Business and Management from University of South Australia in Adelaide, Australia.

He is a specialist in the field of intellectual capital and an expert in innovation management and strategy. He is a common advisor to organizations and governments around the globe. Göran is a CSIRO fellow and also a fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE) and of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA).

Göran was named “one of the 13 most influential thinkers for the 21st Century” by the Spanish business journal “Direccion y Progreso” and was appointed “Manufacturing for the Future” Thinker in Residence by the South Australian Premier for the year 2011 and an appointed member of the Prime Minister’s Manufacturing Leaders Group 2012/2013.
