Leading Australia-based management expert to be keynote speaker at CBAFF conference

Leadership management expert Bob McCarthy and business consultant and logistics expert John Galbraith will be among keynote speakers at the 18th Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Federation (CBAFF) conference, to be held in Nelson from 14-16 May.

The event, at the Rutherford Hotel, will include a tour of Port Nelson, and presentations by a wide range of experts from the industry and beyond.

CBAFF Chief Executive Rosemarie Dawson said the programme had been developed following member and wider industry consultation and building on very positive feedback from the successful new format adopted for the 2013 conference.

“The theme is ‘Thinking Outside the Box – for fresh, sustainable and profitable ideas’, said Ms Dawson. The programme has been designed to provide many fresh ideas for delegates around enhancing leadership, performance and productivity.

“The tour of Port Nelson is also expected to be a major highlight and was also included due to popular demand following our well received Port of Tauranga tour last year.”

Mr McCarthy, a member of the senior management team for Leadership Management Australasia, is renowned for his dynamic speaking style. He has been at the forefront of people and business development for 20 years, helping thousands of businesses improve performance and productivity of their people.

A former officer in the Irish Naval Service, including designing and running the training to help the Service take on an anti-drug-smuggling role, he also headed up Leadership Management Ireland for 12 years and has competed in the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race.

Mr McCarthy will also lead an interactive workshop which will draw upon the latest findings from the LMA’s Leadership Employment and Direction (LEAD) survey and his own vast experience to provide participants with relevant information and insights and specific actions they can take to enhance their own leadership, performance and productivity as well as that of their teams.
John Galbraith, of Bay of Connections and Patchell Industries, is a leading consultant providing advice and coaching for business improvement strategy and implementation within logistics and service sectors, forest and manufacturing.

He has been involved in leadership of major projects including the Bay of Plenty Regional Strategies in Freight Logistics and in Forest & Wood Processing and the Opotiki Harbour Transformation.

Nelson’s own Nathan Fa’avae, adventure racer and Outward Bound and Sport & Recreation New Zealand ambassador, will be the guest speaker at the conference dinner.
