Be part of a bigger conversation…

The Strategy Road Swarm comes together regularly, building and facilitating discussion forums, education seminars and value-providing events for SMEs, corporates & NFP enterprises and the communities they serve. 

In 2019, the Swarm will host several “TED-talks”-style events in Adelaide and beyond, for regional & agribusinesses, the health and aged care sector, travel & leisure organisations, financial service providers, SMEs and more. It will also host a number of smaller events, bringing together panels of diverse, experienced business-related subject matter experts.

If you’d like to get involved in a unique, organic conversation striving to build value for communities and markets across Australia, as an event partner, guest presenter or attendee / participant, please get in touch - We’d love to engage with values-aligned, forward-thinking professionals and organisations that share our desire to collaborate for “better”.
