“ASFA Emerging Leaders provides a great opportunity to hang out with a like-minded group of people who are all facing similar dilemmas, and have the same motivations and aspirations for their career and the industry we’re in. The events have quality speakers and leave me walking away with new things to think about every time. I’m proud to be part of Emerging Leaders.”

–Amara Haqqani, Senior Manager, Retirement Income Policy, Challenger

Here’s what one attendee had to say about the March event on the gig economy:

“Simultaneously inspired yet cautioned, I’ll be processing Dr Martin Fahy’s sage advice for a while yet. With insights spanning centuries, continents and circumstance, Fahy’s edict for navigating the ‘global archipelago’ of our industry is clear – look outward, stay hungry and expect disruption. A fascinating first topic for ASFA Emerging Leaders event year, there’s no doubt we’re soon to feel (and shape our careers addressing) the impacts of the gig economy.”

–Leah Carew, CRM Manager in Brand Engagement, AustralianSuper
