Meg Coffey was recently invited to sit with ten young professionals and Premier Colin Barnett to discuss the future of of Western Australia.

Colin Barnett is yet to put a date on his retirement, but baby boomers will all, eventually, step aside.

The Premier this week met the young professionals poised to take the reins of WA industry, answering their questions on everything from the future of manufacturing to flexible work arrangements.
