Keynote Speakers

Jonathan Pain - Global economics and geo-political expert

It is his view, that the world is increasingly divided between those nations that are submerging

and those that are emerging, which he has called the new reality.

Jonathan Pain has been in the investment industry for 38 years and has led investment teams in London, Bahrain and Sydney. He is the author of The Weekly Pain Report which is written without fear and without favour. Jonathan has lived in six countries and travelled to sixty.


In his keynote, Jonathan will provide a commentary on the key events which will shape and define the world you live in, over the years and decades ahead. It is his view, that the world is increasingly divided between those nations that are submerging and those that are emerging, which he has called the new reality. The submerging nations will spend less and save more and the emerging will spend more and save less.


Jonathan will provide you with an independent and objective perspective of the global economy to help you navigate through the extraordinary times ahead. Seeing the world as a giant jigsaw puzzle, with new pieces arriving every day. Each piece contains a clue and a hint of what the future might look like. He will share his picture of the future with you.

Gus Balbontin - investor, entrepreneur, founder and explorer

"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do." - Steve Jobs

Gus Balbontin is one of them.

Born and bred in wild Patagonia, Gus never allowed his small town and humble beginnings get in the way of his big dreams - he landed his dream job at Lonely Planet. Fast forward a few more years and he was leading the company globally, working with companies such as Google X, Nokia and Amazon on the latest technology, creative cultures and high performing teams.


Steve Jobs said that the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. Gus Balbontin is one of them. He’s an investor, entrepreneur, founder and explorer who has spent two decades helping businesses adjust strategies, products, services, culture and individuals to better deal with rapid and regular changing markets.


Gus Balbontin will delve deep into the digital transformation of the past two decades, sharing stories of how so many companies mishandled this seismic shift and how today’s business leaders can capitalise on the disruption that’s still occurring today.


Gus is candid and full of energy. He will make you laugh hard and equally think deeply about the puzzles of running a business irrespective of size. His common sense will disarm you and his practical approach will get you inspired to take action!
