Your overview of the innovation agenda and the Industry Growth Centres, and the context you provided for the participants, were a fantastic introduction to the rest of the day, which I hope you found interesting. Several other participants commented at the end of the conclusion that they found the discussions very relevant to their roles and were hoping to make use of the report findings in their work.

Dr Evans has chaired a series of sessions for the CEW Leaders Program as well as being a speaker this year in the Singapore program. Bronwyn is imaginative and creative in her approach to any topic that she is asked to address and is an engaging speaker. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a speaker.
-CEW Leaders Program
Bronwyn’s speaking style is engaging and personable. She participated in a panel at the end of a long day of talking, and her frank and amusing approach energised the room and captured the audience’s attention wholly. Bronwyn was a valuable speaker on a program stuffed full of leaders in business, science and government, and we hope she can join us again next year.
