Voted 2013 Winery of the Year at Hawkes Bay A&P Wine Awards. Vidal have created a unique epicurean experience at Vidal Estate, also the home of New Zealand’s first winery restaurant. Founded in 1905, Vidal produces premium award-winning wines that truly reflect the region and vineyards from which they were sourced. Our overriding wine style is one of elegance. We look for underlying complexity, fine structure, good natural acidity and least not concentration of flavour but not in a big, overpowering way. These wines also tend to be better food wines because they don’t dominate food, rather complement.

Balinese-born Ruth Joiner has always been an outsider. Orphaned in Bali and brought up by missionaries in the Australian desert, she is unsure of her heritage or her place in the world. At seventeen she runs away to the small town of Lost River. There she meets the enigmatic David Mathews who gives her solace, friendship and a place to live. David disappears from her life but she is left with a home and a daughter who she names Dewi (‘goddess’ in Balinese). It’s more than she could have hoped for, in a life short on opportunity. But as Ruth has to confront her own, all-too early, mortality it is her calm demeanour that makes us confident that Dewi’s future will be more positive.

Licence to operate: How corporations must adapt to new community expectations

Recent headlines have highlighted the risks that can erode a corporation’s social licence. In many cases, the conduct of large and sophisticated institutions has threatened aspects of their social licence – from perceived tax evasion by multinational corporations, through to operations that fall below community expectations. Alongside this, the rise of social media has broadened the stakeholder base who now demand a voice in relation to the affairs of corporations. Best-practice risk management systems, internal controls, legal support, and sound corporate governance policies are not necessarily sufficient to protect organisations from the risk of damage to their social licence. Questions to arise from this shift include: Are we seeing a change in community expectations? Are organisations adapting to these changes? What are some of the warning signs of a social licence at risk? What steps are leading organisations taking to adapt to the new paradigm? Join our panel of corporate leaders as they share their insights, experiences and lessons in relation to the management and protection of the social licences enjoyed by the organisations they lead.

Panellists will include:
Diane Smith Gander, Chairman, Transfield Services
Tony Howarth AO, Non-Executive Director, Wesfarmers
Jane Gouvernet, WA Regional Commissioner, ASIC
Andrew Pascoe, Perth Practice Director, Allens
