Major Projects and Industry Forum speaker line-up for Thursday 19th October

Proudly sponsored by Gold Partners, MRAEL, and Networking Event Sponsor, Frenchville Sports Club, Capricorn Enterprise’s 2023 Major Projects and Industry Forum is the place to hear directly from project and industry leaders on Thursday 19th October 2023. 

This year’s Forum features a full program, highlighting not just regional futures and major projects updates but also health, education and energy projects and opportunities. Reflecting our strategic location, our region has key strengths across a number of industries that position us positively as our state continues to grow. 

Frank Edwards, Capricorn Enterprise Industry Engagement Manager, said, “The quality and range of our speaker program has always been, and continues to be, a drawcard for delegates wanting to stay abreast of significant local and regional industry and development.” 

Included in this year’s speaker line-up are local, regional and state-wide presenters who will share their knowledge on a range of topics. Presented across three sessions, the packed program will deliver powerful insights into the economic outlook for Queensland’s regions with popular presenter Gene Tunny from Adept Economics leading Session 1 on Regional Futures and Projects.  

Session 1 will also offer compelling insights into three major projects in our region that are commencing (Rockhampton Ring Road), operating (Carmichael Mine) and finalising (Rookwood Wier). With key leaders from Bravus Mining and Resources, Department of Transport and Main Roads and Sunwater presenting the latest updates as well as participating in a panel session, attendees will benefit from being in the room to learn more and consider the opportunities available. 

Session 2 of the program will focus on two key drivers of our regional economy: health and education. Discover more about how to exercise leadership (Rockhampton Grammar School); how the Central Queensland Hospital and Health Service is building, growing and thriving; automation for the agriculture and horticulture industries (CQUniversity) and the Fitzroy Community Hospice Project.  

Session 3 is all about energy. Hear directly from major organisations and corporations including Energy Queensland and Stanwell about the future distribution grid as well as major projects (Clarke Creek Wind Farm and Energy Estate’s Central Queensland Project) and what this will mean for future workforce and training requirements. 

The Forum provides delegates with multiple occasions to engage with industry leaders through panel sessions and networking opportunities. Delegates are invited to wrap up their very full day with a final networking session. 

Mary Carroll, Capricorn Enterprise CEO, said, “We are certain that delegates will appreciate the diversity of speakers and presentations at the Forum, as well as take advantage of a prime opportunity to network with industry leaders and engage in conversations about our ever evolving region.”
