SYDNEY – Speaker Series – “Think Like an Entrepreneur” with Ben Thompson, Founder/ CEO Employment Hero

November 8th, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Free – $75.00

Calling all finance execs…..when was the last time your business registered 7% month-on-month growth for five years running?  For our next FEI high-growth start-up guest, this is what success looks like.  Operating in such a fast-paced environment requires a different type of thinking – agile, entrepreneurial and creative with problem solving.  FEI is thrilled to be teaming up with one of Australia’s leading entrepreneurs to give you an insight into the entrepreneurial mindset.

We welcome, as our guest speaker, Ben Thompson, CEO & founder of Employment Hero (among several other successful companies).  From its inception in 2014, Ben has developed Employment Hero to be valued at $100million in its latest Series C funding round.   Ben and Employment Hero have been recognised with a multitude of awards including finalist for EY Entrepreneur of the Year, Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and Dynamic Business Top 10 Entrepreneurs………a great Australian start-up success story. 

At this event, you will learn about:

  • the power of first principles thinking
  • the potential of tech-facilitated ecosystems
  • when technology is truly value-add
  • what to consider when investing in start-ups

This event offers CFOs and senior finance execs the chance to hear from an entrepreneur with a proven track record of creating innovative solutions, industry firsts and disruptive offerings that redefine markets.  Don’t miss it!

Catering at this event will be stand up and tickets are offered at half the standard FEI ticket price.  For those members who have purchased event bundles, we will offer a further half-price event during this membership year to ensure that you receive full value.
