QUT Business Leaders' Forum @ Hilton Brisbane

05 September 2017

Former Aurizon Managing Director and CEO, Lance Hockridge to address the next QUT Business Leaders' Forum on Tuesday 5 September 2017.

Lance Hockridge was CEO of Aurizon Holdings for six and a half years until December 2016. In that role he transformed the state-owned behemoth into one of Australia’s strongest performing companies. Lance has over 30 years of experience in the transportation and heavy industrial sectors in Australia and the United States. As President of BlueScope Steel’s North American operations, he led the successful demerger from BHP and a massive turnaround in performance.

As CEO of Aurizon, Lance Hockridge received a coveted Women’s Empowerment Principles Award in New York for advancing and empowering women in the workplace and the community. Aurizon is the first Australian company to win this award. He is a signatory of the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles.

Lance Hockridge will speak about his remarkable journey, from a farming community in Tenterfield to being recognised as one of our nation’s great business leaders. He will outline the leadership qualities that have so successfully driven fundamental change in some of our major corporate enterprises and will talk about why he is such a fervent believer in diversity and inclusiveness in the workplace.

It will be a pleasure to welcome back as Moderator, one of Australia’s leading journalists, Kerry O’Brien.
