As the superannuation industry continues down a path of transformation, the role of leadership and culture has never been more important.

At ASFA’s inaugural Spotlight on Leadership in Super, you will gain insights into leadership best practice, people strategy and development by exploring a mix of case studies from both inside and outside the industry.

Expert commentators will discuss what good leadership looks like, giving you answers to questions such as:

  • what are the current trends and thinking around leadership?
  • should leadership development be in-house or external?
  • how can performance incentives and objectives be aligned with the right culture across an entire organisation?
  • how should super funds deal with reputational, regulatory and people risk in times of crisis?
  • what do top recruiters look for when researching and identifying leadership talent?
