Thanks so much for joining us last Friday for the Townsville Enterprise Ergon Energy Leadership Forum. It is very difficult to give an indepth overview of a two week event in 40 minutes, but hope through the presentation, the Q&A and the references below it gives you a much greater insight into some of the international leadership either via subnational governments and or the business community being provided in lieu of a binding international agreement, and what that all means to you, your business, your community and your family and the subsequent opportunities.
As promised here’s a copy of my Power Point presentation. Other reference documents are as follows:
