November 10th Breakfast 2017

Back by popular demand, we welcome Daniel Petre.

In September 2016 Daniel Petre solidified his status as the country's most influential investor when he was named as Australia’s most powerful player in the technology sector in the Australian Financial Review’s ‘Power Issue’ - A title well-earned if you take a glimpse at his resume…

During his career spanning over 30 years, Petre has acted as right-hand man to Bill Gates for the Microsoft Office in the US, as well as taking up the role of managing director of Microsoft Australia.

With this kind of influence and success, Petre could almost be forgiven for becoming a stuffy suit, throwing his weight around the business community and pressuring his employees to get to the office early and leave late.

His principles on healthy work/life balance earned him the nick-name ‘The 9-5 VP’ during his time at Microsoft for his refusal to let late meetings disrupt time with his family. Such were his convictions on the issue, he penned the book ‘Father Time’ highlighting the importance of balancing corporate life and fatherhood.

Daniel Petre will share the latest in the tech space globally as well as his profound insights and personal stories into the struggle of balancing family pressures with the stresses of corporate life. Plus, he will smash the idea that working overtime equals more success and productivity, a myth that has plagued white-collar industries for too long!
