Australia has had many overseas success stories and amongst them is Treasury Wine Estates - the pre-eminent, premium focused, global leader in wine. With strong positions in key global markets including the US, supported by an unrivalled global footprint and business model, TWE has an international portfolio of brands that are now sold in more than 70 countries.

Join TWE CEO Tim Ford as he talks about the company’s differentiated global business model, and how the company has responded to changing consumer trends, environmental impacts, and market conditions such as COVID-19.  

Tim will also be joined in a fireside chat by Sara James, Emmy award winning broadcast journalist and author, to discuss geopolitical effects on international trade, including the effective closure of the Chinese market to Australian wine; and how TWE is investing in the Americas to build momentum in the world’s largest premium wine market.

For any businesses navigating the undulating global business ocean, this is a lunch not to miss.
