Sydney FC In Business


The Sydney FC in Business events combine networking and education with Q&A sessions with Australian financial analyst and journalist, Ross Greenwood and keynote addresses from Australia’s leading business and sport personalities. Exploring current topics in business and sport, these regular events have set the benchmark for business luncheons.

Sydney FC’s long time running, successful business luncheon series continues in the 2014/15 season with 2 lunches scheduled. Make the most of networking opportunities and hear from some of the best business minds in Australia and the World. Guest speakers to date include, Frank Lowy AC, Mark Bouris, Andrew Forrest, Harold Mitchell and Jeffery Browne.

We invite you to attend our next Sydney FC in Business event with distinguished keynote speaker, Ahmed Fahour (Managing Director and CEO, Australia Post). The Sydney FC squad will also be unveiled, including a Q&A with the Head Coach and our Captain as we launch the 2014/15 season.

Ahmed Fahour has broad experience as a management consultant and corporate leader – in Australia and internationally. Mr Fahour began his professional career at Boston Consulting Group (BCG), where he became a director and served on BCG’s International Partner Group. In 2000, he was recruited by Citigroup and moved to New York, where he worked as Head of Corporate Development and, later, as CEO of Citigroup Alternative Investments – as well as serving on the company’s Global Management Committee. In 2004, he joined the National Australia Bank (NAB) as an Executive Director and Australian CEO.

Since being appointed Managing Director and CEO of Australia Post in early 2010, he has been leading a major business transformation program, called Future Ready, which involves repositioning Australia Post to seize the opportunities of the digital economy.
