Regions Rising Webinar Series in partnership with Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Community Enterprise Foundation

Next Webinar: in conversation with marnie and the minister

The Regional Australia Institute (RAI) is excited to host the first event in our Regions Rising Webinar Series in partnership with Bendigo and Adelaide Bank and its charitable arm the Community Enterprise Foundation.

RAI CEO Liz Ritchie will be sitting down, virtually, with Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Managing Director Marnie Baker and Minister for Regional Health, Regional Communications, and Local Government the Hon Mark Coulton for a constructive conversation about the role of regions in a post-COVID-19 world.

Liz, Marnie, and the Minister will be discussing the impact of the pandemic on the regions as the nation begins to recover from the dual-crises – health and economic – that COVID-19 has brought. There will be a wide ranging discussion on the here, the now and the future of regions as well as providing recent insights from RAI’s The Gauge survey and Bendigo and Adelaide Bank’s customer and community networks on the ground.

Join Liz, Marnie, and the Minister for this evidence-led discussion as they tease out what the new ‘normal’ could be after the COVID-19 crises.

The free event, which will be held as a Zoom Webinar, will also allow for a Q&A session with attendees.
