FESPA Australia has named Arron Wood - a sustainable business expert and former Deputy Lord Mayor for the City of Melbourne – as the keynote speaker for the FESPA Annual Conference in November 2023.



Wood (pictured) leads a team of clean energy policy experts as the chief policy and impact officer at the Clean Energy Council, helping to drive Australia towards 100% renewable energy.

“As the 2007 Prime Minister’s Environmentalist of the Year Award winner, Arron speaks passionately about the need for Australian businesses to be at the forefront of the new green economy to secure the nation as an environmental knowledge and technology leader,” said FESPA Australia.

“Whether it is advising 700 local government executives from around the world on how to see sustainability as an opportunity or speaking at the National Business Leaders Forum on Re-calibrating the Risk From Climate Change, Arron's leading edge understanding coupled with global experience on sustainability issues results in constant demand for his talents across a wide variety of industries, community groups and government organisations.”

Wood is founder and MD of Firestarter Pty Ltd, an environmental communication and education consultancy business. He also runs the successful Kids Teaching Kids Program for students from around the world, which has attracted $30 million in funding over the life of the project (single-handedly raised by Wood) and seen 135,000 students participate in the program.

The FESPA Annual Conference will take place on 3 November 2023 at the Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney and will bring together leading industry experts, suppliers, business owners and future leaders for a program packed with presenters, interactive panel sessions, global live streaming and more.

“Offering insights and inspiration, there will be increased networking opportunities where you will have the chance to meet with thought leaders and industry experts who are already developing and demonstrating sustainability, leadership and other innovative practices to guide print companies to a better future,” FESPA Australia said.

The conference is sponsored by: Orafol – Diamond Sponsor, Gold Sponsors, Ball & Doggett, Durst, Visual Connections, Silver Sponsors, Kissel & Wolf, Cactus Imaging and Bronze Sponsor, HVG Graphics.
