You can’t beat the real thing

07 July, 2017

Leaders from Coca-Cola Amatil, BAE Systems and Australian Unity are part of an all-star CCI Lighthouse Leaders line up this month. 

Coca-Cola may have been in Australia since 1938 and come in at number five on the Forbes “World’s Most Valuable Brands” list this year, but the $56.4 billion company has faced a four per cent fall in global value and can’t be complacent when it comes to its products.

Responding to concerns about sugar in soft drinks, the company launched a new product – Coca-Cola No Sugar – in Australia about four weeks ago.  

Hear from Coca-Cola Amatil Group Managing Director Alison Watkins at a special event on July 11.

CCI’s has joined forces with the Business Council of Australia to roll out some of the big names in business for its exclusive Lighthouse Leadership Series.

Watkins will provide fascinating insights into the beverage company, which has 14,000 employees across Australia, Indonesia, New Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Samoa. 

Joining Coca-Cola Amatil in 2014, Watkins has previously held roles including CEO of GrainCorp, CEO of Berri Limited and managing director of regional banking at ANZ.

She also sits as a non-executive director on the boards of ANZ, Woolworths and Just Group Limited.

Watkins will be joined by BAE Systems Australia Chief Executive Officer Glynn Phillips and Australian Unity Group Chief Executive Officer Rohan Mead at the powerhouse event to be held at the Hyatt Regency.

They will discuss the challenges and opportunities their conglomerates face when doing business in Western Australia as well as how these challenges and opportunities contribute to the nation’s prosperity.

Don’t miss the triple headline act of leaders from some of the country’s best-known companies that is sure to inspire your leadership aspirations.
