Penrith Mayor John Thain said innovation would play a critical role in transforming Penrith over years to come.

“Innovation is the key to securing the future of Western Sydney and has a crucial and ongoing role to play in transforming Penrith,” Cr Thain said.

“At the centre of any innovative city are the business leaders who drive change, inspire creativity and have a vision to transform new ideas into sustainable outcomes.

“Businesses embracing innovation constantly seek better ways to do things, making them quick to adapt and retain a competitive edge - driving future growth.

“They challenge and question the status quo, attract and retain talent and foster a culture that rewards enquiring minds,” he said.

Penrith Talks: Innovation is a series of four events designed to connect thought leaders and innovators with like-minded and interested Western Sydney locals.

The event takes place between 6pm  and 8pm on Wednesday, June 28 at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre.
