Chief Financial Officer
GTS Freight Management
With a fleet of over 150 trucks travelling over 100,000kms a day, the amount of data being created daily is growing rapidly. With so much data available, gaining accurate visibility across the business was a concern.
Ben Chatfield will share his vision and the journey that GTS have been on to continue to grow the business. To continue to grow and move forward, it was essential that they would be able to provide strategic insights, remove data inaccuracies and allow the business to make better-informed business decisions. He will discuss how with Board, the organisation have been able to reduce their MT running (trips with no freight) improving profitability and efficiency.
11.10 – 11.55am
Justin “Jonesy” Jones
Jonesy unpacks the lessons he’s learnt from the past 18 years of adventure and the ‘expedition mindset’ needed to focus, adapt, overcome and achieve under extreme stress situations. From a kayak in the middle of the Tasman Sea smashed by 10 metre waves, to the depths of a blizzard in Antarctica and the suffocating heat of the Outback; Jonesy will show you how to translate the mindset you need to succeed in the most hostile environments to all areas of your business and life.

BoardVille 2018 provided attendees with the unique opportunity to understand, through powerful keynotes, use case demonstrations and thought leadership presentations, how technology is transforming the way leading global organisations address strategic, financial and operational decision-making.
Held in both Melbourne and Sydney, BoardVille allows attendees from global multinationals to local Australian organisations interact, learn and draw inspiration from each other as well as to spend time among industry leaders who drive the evolution of digital decision-making.
Highlights from BoardVille 2018
Here’s what customers said about BoardVille 2018
Great to see how Australian owned customers like Bankwest are utilising the functionality of Board. I didn’t realise the full capabilities around the scenario planning and ‘what if’ capabilities Board could offer until hearing Andrew from Bankwest’s presentation in Sydney.
The event was even better then Boardville 2017, I can’t wait to see what BoardVille 2019 looks like!
Really enjoyed the panel session, bringing together 2 local customers along with an international speaker, and the way the 3 very different organisations use Board to provide the organisation the data and insights they need.
I came to BoardVille to understand the capabilities of Board and what is available, the conference met that expectation
Excellent event, great opportunity to network with local peers
It’s a great event to attend, you have the opportunity to meet other customers and share best practises.
