Panel discussion with Julie Wagner, President, Urban Insight and Nonresident Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution

Kindly Hosted by Lendlease

In today’s innovation landscape, no one company can master all the knowledge it needs, requiring companies and other organisations to rely on a network of industry collaborators. This in turn has placed a growing premium on collaboration and the convergence of multiple minds and disciplines. In these enclaves, research-laden anchor institutions and companies cluster within close quarters to foster the conditions that lead to innovative growth.

In that vein, the Committee was delighted to welcome back Julie Wagner, President, Urban Insight and Nonresident Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution, for a discussion with a panel of experts on collaboration and how it is contributing to a new geography of innovation districts, across all global regions. Other panel members included:

  • Caity McLoughlin | Associate Director, Optus Business, Optus
  • Laura Schmahmann | Associate, SGS Economics and Planning
  • Julie Wagner | President, Urban Insight and Nonresident Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution
  • Prof. David Wilkinson | Deputy Vice Chancellor Corporate Engagement and Advancement, Macquarie University
  • Eamon Waterford | Acting CEO, The Committee for Sydney (panel moderator)

Members also heard excellent presentations from the Greater Sydney Commission Commissioner and former Committee for Sydney Chairwoman Lucy Turnbull AO, as well as Westpac Group Head of Sustainability & Community and Committee for Sydney Board Member Siobhan Toohill.

The Committee would like to thank Lendlease for generously hosting this event.
