Julianne Manning
Head of Planning & Analysis
Fitness Lifestyle Group

Gone are the days of disconnect between hearsay and actual results. In today’s ever-changing world, the volume of data is increasing, and financial teams are now expected to deliver data-driven insights of the highest quality and accuracy.

Julianne Manning from Fitness Lifestyle Group (FLG), Asia Pacific’s largest fitness, health and wellness group with famous brands like Fitness First and Jets, will share their finance team’s transformational journey with Board.

Learn how the Group is leveraging the decision-making platform to standardise and streamline their financial reporting across their 10+ and continuously growing different brands.

The FLG story doesn’t end there, Julianne will also share their future goals and plans to grow in the next year and beyond.

10.40 – 11.10am

Ben Chatfield
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.
