The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Sri Lanka will be hosting its third CIM CEOs Breakfast Forum for this year on 13 September at the Union Ballroom, Hilton Colombo Residences from 7:30 a.m. onwards. 

The event will be powered by BMW Prestige Automobile Ltd., the authorised importer for the premium German brand – Bavarian Motor Works AG, in Sri Lanka, better known as BMW, with a history of almost two decades in Sri Lankan Prestige Automobile, incorporated in December 1994. 

The forum will bring together top business leaders, CEOs, CIM fellow members and senior corporate executives and is organised with the objective of highlighting emerging themes in marketing/business and discuss best practices to support strategic decisions for the future. This forum will be a platform for participants to share and exchange key insights which would help them in making decisions in their own organisations.

The speaker at the forum will be Bryce Hutchesson. He was appointed as Australia’s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka in February 2016 and is a senior officer in the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). 

He joined the department in 1988 after working for a time as a lawyer in private practice in Melbourne. He has served overseas with DFAT in New Delhi (as Deputy High Commissioner), Bangkok and Tel Aviv, as well as with the Office of National Assessments in Washington DC. Hutchesson’s work with DFAT in Canberra has focused primarily on foreign and security policy issues over a geographic spread from Southeast Asia through South Asia to the Middle East. 

Before coming to Sri Lanka he headed the division in DFAT responsible for the countries of South Asia covering foreign policy, economic diplomacy and aid management matters. Hutchesson has Law and Commerce degrees from Melbourne University.
