Is high-tech manufacturing imaginable in Brisbane?

Cook Medical says, YES!

One in 5 children in Australian schools has now been born through assisted reproduction.

You are invited to a “Must-See” Presentation and Tour of this Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) facility employing over 500 people.  The largest private medical device manufacturer in the World – and a specialist in IVF reproductive assistance, is opening its Brisbane facility for this event and 3 senior managers share their experiences and strategies.

Speakers include Jason Spittle, Global Director of Training – Reproductive Health. A trained embryologist, Jason has worked in assisted reproduction for the last 30 years and has designed over 100 devices for human and veterinary use, holding several patents. He will speak about its history and current state of play.

Milica Talic, Head of Regulatory Affairs Asia Pacific. When your company sells medical devices throughout Asia Pacific – you’d better be able to negotiate the technical and legal matters involved in getting them registered. With over 25 years’ experience, Milica will share some of the major challenges and solutions in this cross-cultural domain.

They will share their wealth of knowledge gathered from over 25 years of experience in the medical device industry.

As the largest privately-held medical device manufacturing company in the world, Cook Medical understands that globally competitive decision-making surrounds the location of high-end manufacturing facilities.

The presentation tour will be followed by refreshments and networking kindly sponsored by Cook

Bonus Round Table: (by invitation, following expressions of interest, no extra cost). Limited numbers mean
expressions of interest should be indicated on booking form.

In a short round table discussion prior to the Cook Medical Presentation and Tour, Mandy Horne, Manager Corporate Affairs Asia Pacific, will discuss an innovation driven policy proposal that Cook Medical is currently spearheading, to secure a manufacturing future for Australia.

Known as the AIM Incentive, Mandy will discuss what the proposal is, how it works and the challenges faced in turning this idea into legislation. You may be able to help those efforts succeed!
