April 1-2, 2022.
The second annual Australian Retreat hosted by the Australian American Chamber of Commerce in San Francisco will bring together like-minded Australian and other leaders in the Bay Area. The retreat will be held April 1-2, 2022 at the Summit Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, CA, and begins on a Friday afternoon and concludes the next day.
The intimate program promises a unique mix of business round tables and networking activities. The private Skywalker Ranch offers guests bespoke hospitality and unparalleled access to exclusive private settings, including hiking trails and the Skywalker Winery.
The AACC will use this platform to discuss life and business in a world that continues to be impacted by Covid-19. One round table discussion will focus on the Australian and US economic outlook, bilateral relations and AUKUS. The other will focus on the workplace environment and ways we can adapt to evolving conditions brought on by the pandemic. Chatham house rules apply to these important discussions.
"The retreat offers an environment unlike any other which allows deep business connections to be fostered. Over the two days the amazing venue offered multiple opportunities to share insight, learn from one another and relax amongst friends." Cameron Briggs GM and Head of Future Energy, Origin Energy
