“From my perspective and from what I garnered from those around me it was a great success and personally I got huge value from the session…This type of format has real depth and value and is a unique opportunity for those that attend…Peter’s capability as a host both in presentation and subject matter experience was clearly evident and respected by the guest and elevated the premium nature of the event…Well done guys. Look forward to the next one.”
– Julian Townley, CEO & Founder, red Engine
…thanks for having the courage to create 2020exchange and for the opportunities to meet and be inspired by others that is has created for me…I hope the organisation continues to grow from strength to strength and also continues to provide the same value to the rest of the members as it has to me this past year.
– Rod Bland, CEO and Founder, RamCity.com.au
Thanks so much for including me in the breakfast this morning with David Murray. I found the interview and the morning insightful and worthwhile. It is great to hear from people with such great experience who can articulate things well. He is truly wise and the country could afford to listen to him even more than we already do.
– Andrew McEvoy, Managing Director, Fairfax Media
Top session… well done to the 2020 team. The Across The Table event was brilliantly organised. I thoroughly enjoyed the interactions with the other CEO attendees and garnered fantastic insight and ideas from the event.
– Joseph Rizk, Managing Director and CEO, Arab Bank Australia
I’d like to also say thanks for the ongoing 2020 meetings. I’m getting a great deal out of it each and every meeting. I’m very grateful for the participation.
– Kobi Simmat, CEO, Best Practice Certification
Enjoyed the session this morning. The conceptual framework and strategies around personal branding & the art of influencing was excitingly simple. I take away with me… “You cannot have a positive life and a negative mind” and that with positive discipline and focus everything is possible.
– Joseph Murray, Managing Director, Trippas White Group
I really enjoyed hearing Ted Pretty’s story… what an impressive executive! He both validated and challenged my thinking on a few things.
– Lisa Claes, Executive Director, Customer Delivery, ING DIRECT
An event that was very well put together, with a great group of people, and what turned out to be an excellent conversation. I confess that I was ready to be somewhat cynical about the prospect of an open and forthright discussion, and was very pleasantly surprised.
– Stephe Wilks, Chairman, Bulletproof Group Limited
Last week’s meeting was seriously awesome – the best I’ve ever experienced anywhere. I believe it’s a true credit to our Chair’s involvement, and also our group becoming in tune with one another.
– Daniel Davis, CEO, Gallop Solutions
It’s a pleasure to be part of my group. I’ve felt I’ve grown in every aspect since I started and my Chair’s leadership in our group has contributed in a significant way. I look forward to our next meeting and for 2015 – the year we ‘DO’ more of every-thing in every-way.
– Steve Hui, CEO & Founder, iFLYflat
I joined 2020 earlier this year and could not be happier. The combination of stimulating speakers and thoughtful focused content/discussion means I get a half day each month to reflect and boot up my focus to be the best CEO I can be. I highly recommend the process and the experience – especially for those who like me are leading through complex change that requires ‘A’ game every day.
– Cynthia Payne, CEO, The Summit Group of Companies
It was a great privilege to be included in today’s session and I found it thoroughly entertaining, enlightening, informative, frightening and obviously quite topical. Michael Pascoe was at his cheeky best and Graham Bradley’s thoughts and perceptions across all sectors of business was engaging. The calibre of guests invited was second to none and it was nice to make some new connections…
-Deborah Hutton, Founder, Balance by Deborah Hutton
Fantastic session today, really well done in pulling that together – the people I met were genuine, positive and interesting; very much looking forward to getting stuck in to the group.
– Jeremy Crooks, Managing Director, AUNZ, Criteo
The meeting exceeded my expectations! The candid & honest nature of John O’Neill was both insightful & inspirational.
– John Crothers, Regional Director, Abbott Diagnostics
With the amount of things I go to and organise I have become hard to impress. David, I am impressed. What an outstanding initiative today’s session was. Truly unique and one that exceeded my expectations. I had been looking forward to attending and the combination of interest factor together with a learning exercise was excellent and didn’t disappoint.
– Mark Rantall, CEO, Financial Planning Association of Australia
