Mobility professionals are working in an ever-changing world and the external and internal factors impacting business have never been greater. Disruption, innovation, artificial intelligence, automation, globalisation, protectionism, future of work, employee experience along-side ever present political, social and financial challenges.

The Melbourne Mobility Forum aims to make sense of this new environment and will investigate ways that embrace this new way of thinking whilst continuing to deliver around risk, talent, and core business. This is all presented in a day of editorially-driven main conference sessions, educational seminar sessions, corporate roundtable interactive discussions and numerous networking opportunities that will showcase a truly global view of mobility.

The Melbourne Mobility Forum has teamed up with Australia’s governing industry body for Global Workforce Management – We are delighted to announce our partnership with The Employee Mobility Institute (TEMI).
