- Before the sun rises over the Gold Coast, it’s already a new day across the Tasman – lessons for both sides of the ditch;

Oral presentations will be allocated 45 minutes, including questions and answers to be held at the conclusion of each presentation or session (time permitting) in the Forum program.
