Australia’s corporate political advisers – those responsible for Government Relations advice – will meet in Canberra in November, after the Federal election, to discuss the election outcome and the changes driven by the “First 100 Days” of the new, or returned, Federal Government.

The 7th Annual Government Relations Summit 2013, to be held at the National Press Club, will discuss the changes from the “First 100 Days” – the period when the freshly minted Government begins implementing new policies, and new or returned Ministers drive new initiatives.

Conference organiser Glen Frost, Managing Director of Frocomm Australia, said the conference would focus on that period directly following the election.

“The period after a Federal election is characterised by intense change, intense activity, and intense uncertainty,” Mr Frost said.  “The Government typically uses the ‘first 100 days’ to initiate new policies, or implement policies agreed to in the campaign period. These may have an unforeseen impact on companies and associations. There may be unintended consequences on existing policies.”

The conference is the meeting place for in-house Government Relations practitioners from the corporate and association sectors; it offers a forum to discuss the impact a new or returned Government has on their business or their sector.

“We have attracted very high calibre speakers who are well versed across the rich tapestry of Australian politics,” Mr Frost said.  “They reflect a deep knowledge of Labor, the Liberals, the Nationals, Greens and Independents, their key policies and how these policies could impact on Australian businesses.”
