Leading Facebook’s ANZ team – and working with 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.

His tenure at Facebook saw the ANZ business grow from mere start-up to over US$1billion in annual revenue – becoming one of the most successful Facebook markets in the world.

He is a high-impact personality on the highest-profile media stages, and is a member of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s Knowledge Nation 100, top innovation leaders in Australia.

Speed up - Advice from a disrupter

On behalf of the South Australian and Northern Territory Division Council it is our pleasure to invite you to the 2018 SA Fellows’ Dinner.

We are pleased to announce Stephen Scheeler, former CEO of Facebook in Australia and New Zealand, presenting at this year’s 8th Annual Fellows’ Dinner on the next generation of digital disruption.

Stephen will cut to the chase on the next wave of digital disruption and explain how to compete with digital natives, with targeted advice to directors based on his time at the social platform that transformed media services. He encourages directors to skill up and be curious to close this gap, suggesting directors need to use technology in the same way as their customers do – talk to experts and educate yourself and the board – be relentlessly curious.

As a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors you are one of an elite group of influential leaders and contributors to the South Australian business and director community. The Fellows’ Dinner has been established to provide an opportunity to recognise your contribution and provide an exclusive forum for the promotion of fellowship.

Please join us for an evening of exquisite dining with locally sourced SA food and wine, hosted in the historic Mortlock Chamber of the SA State Library.

Places are limited so book early to avoid missing out on this must attend event in the Fellows’ annual calendar.
