Virgin Galactic’s Stephen Attenborough to give keynote at WiBF’s 9th Annual Forum, hosted by Deutsche Bank

On Thursday 4 May 2017, Deutsche Bank will host the Women in Banking and Finance (WiBF) 9th Annual Forum at the Hyatt Regency in Sydney.
Virgin Galactic’s Stephen Attenborough will give a keynote address on this year’s theme beyond boundaries: is curiosity the key?
Michael Ormaechea, Deutsche Bank’s Chief Executive Officer for Australia, said: “This year’s theme will look at the importance of pushing boundaries and considering what’s possible. This has never been more important for all industries, including ours, in today’s rapidly changing world.” 
Ormaechea added: “This is our 9th year hosting the Forum and as always we hope the audience will find it insightful and come away having learned something.”
Joining Attenborough in this year’s speaker line up is Anna Bligh AC, Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Banker’s Association and writer, photographer, stylist and creative director, Margaret Zhang and Sebastien Eckersley-Maslin founder and CEO of venture technology firm BlueChilli. 
Speakers will share their personal and professional experiences in operating beyond boundaries separately before joining a panel moderated by commentator and former ABC702 radio host Adam Spencer
