Former CEO of Facebook in Australia and New Zealand, Stephen Scheeler, personally had a hand in the global disruption that we are experiencing today and is an internationally renowned authority on the power of technology and how it continues to influence business.
Leading Facebook’s unprecedented rise from quirky Silicon Valley start-up to media and technology titan, this digital transformation juggernaut knows what it takes to generate serious growth.
Working alongside Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg and Facebook’s Silicon Valley leaders – Stephen guided Facebook ANZ’s overall business – including Instagram, Messenger, Whatsapp and Oculus – through one of the most dynamic periods of growth and disruption in recent business history.
During his tenure he grew the business from US$50 million to US$1billion in annual revenue – causing the Australia and New Zealand arm to become one of the most successful Facebook markets in the world.
Speaking for the first time on the Sunshine Coast, Stephen will openly share inside stories about how Facebook and the tech giants think about innovation, where they are placing their bets for the future and, most importantly, what all of this means for the future of consumers, business and society.
Stephen’s visionary keynote will lay out five themes around how the next wave of digital innovation will lead to a true end of isolation for businesses, industries and countries around the world and will enable small and medium businesses to better understand and prepare for the coming digital invasion.
