Keynote Speaker

Steve Sammartino

Business Technologist

Steve Sammartino

Steve wrote his first lines of computer code at age 10. He is one Australia’s most respected futurists and business technologists. He has an incredible ability to make sense of how emerging technology applies to your industry.

He is a born entrepreneur, and had his first start-up at age 12 – an organic egg farm before the words ‘organic’ or ‘start-up’ had been invented! He even started a clothing business part-time and managed to build up the business to a point where he sold it. He used to start work at 5am, sell to customers at lunch time and do the administration at night.

After completing studies in economics and finance at university he worked in multiple Fortune 500 companies including Proctor & Gamble, SAB Miller, Kimberly-Clark, Mondelez (Kraft / Cadbury), WPP (the world’s biggest media company). He held many senior positions culminating in directorships before decided to revert to his true passion for technology. His experience means he intimately understands the disruptive forces many established companies are facing today.

More information on speakers will be available closer to the date.
