BREAKFAST MASTERCLASS: How To Negotiate The Perfect  HMA Term Sheet – Is There One ? 

Term sheets underpin the commercial agreement and form the reference point for parties as they negotiate and finalise contractual arrangements. It is a document that ideally achieves the right balance between being succinct but yet sufficiently detailed and clear. Join us as we discuss with our panel of experts as what makes for an ideal term sheet for a hotel management agreement in the context of existing and new-build hotels and explore the new trigger points for both an operator and an owner in a post-COVID world.

KEYNOTE PRESENTED BY VOYAGES INDIGENOUS TOURISM AUSTRALIA: Brownlow medallist and acclaimed Indigenous artist, GAVIN WANGANEENPresented by Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia.
 

Two-time Premiership winner, member of the AFL Hall of Fame and Brownlow medallist, Gavin Wanganeen is reputed as one of the best to ever play the game.

Gavin Wanganeen’s AFL career spanned 300 senior games at the Essendon and Port Adelaide Football Clubs, earning him countless accolades, including the dedication of a grandstand at Adelaide Oval in 2015, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the game.

Gavin blazed a trail as the first Indigenous player to receive a Brownlow medal and reach 300 games. Having retired from the AFL over a decade ago, he continues to inspire and break new ground through his work as a contemporary Indigenous artist. Gavin’s astonishing natural talent continues to blossom, attracting national attention and acclaim and firmly establishing him as a contemporary Indigenous artist to watch.

Gavin Wanganeen is devoted to giving back to community through his role as ambassador for Power Community Programs with the Port Adelaide Football Club and Deadly Choices, an initiative run by Aboriginal Health. He travels to remote Aboriginal communities, predominantly in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjattjara (APY) Lands in north-west South Australia, encouraging positive life choices through sport, education, culture and community.

Gavin is also an ambassador for the AFL’s Aboriginal youth football team, the Boomerangs, and travelled with the group to China in 2016.
