1 Global Forum - 16 International Speakers - 1 Gala Dinner

“The Conference was absolutely WORLD CLASS. I can count on the fingers of one hand full day conferences that have managed to grip the audience’s attention throughout, which this one did... and what’s more, it did that despite a pretty expert audience on the topic!”

Driving performance through better balanced business

The best performing companies have the best performing teams and attract, retain and develop the best talent regardless of gender. Talent management is one of the key enablers to delivering a sustainable business. The Balanced Business Forum (formerly known as The Women’s Business Forum) is the Worlds first gender balanced leadership conference. We challenge, debate and deliver effective leadership and organisational performance via the delivery of progressive and sustainable talent management solutions.
