BDO Business Outlook 2023

BDO Business Outlook 2023

This year's BDO Outlook event brought together community and industry leaders for a ring-side seat to discuss 'what's next' for businesses, individuals, and the community - tackling the state's rising economic and social pressures.

Moderated by award-winning journalist and commentator, Madonna King, industry leaders faced off to explore the impact of the status quo and future state of play in their markets.

The perspectives flowed thick and fast, spotlighting the big issues driving Queensland’s growth and highlighting two competing priorities - social housing and large-scale infrastructure demands.

Thank you to all our event attendees for your continued support, and to our panellists for such a stimulating and thought-provoking discussion.
