Uber Eats ANZ regional general manager Jodie Auster: The shift in consumer eating behaviour has created significant change for the food industry

During the conference, she will share insights and learnings from other markets that are influencing innovation in online food delivery.

Uber Eats ANZ regional general manager Jodie Auster will be joining the QSR Media Sandhurst Conference and Awards on June 20 for a speaking session on how Aussies are eating.

A leader with unique combination of medical expertise, top-tier management consulting experience and business leadership in high-growth tech startups, Auster started her professional career as an emergency doctor where she learned the art of hypothesis-driven problem solving and triage.

After completing her MBA at Melbourne Business School, Jodie spent two years at Bain & Company building her business foundation. Jodie "fell in love" with the start-up life as GM Operations at Scoopon, before moving to San Francisco in early 2013 to be at the heart of tech innovation in Silicon Valley.

She joined Uber Eats shortly after it launched in 2016, excited by the potential it was going to transform the restaurant industry.

What particular industry issues or developments are you currently thinking about?
The shift in consumer eating behaviour has created significant change for the food industry. Now that we know that online food delivery is a product that consumers want and enjoy, we want to ensure that we get the balance right between the users of the app and continue to grow in a way that is positive for everyone involved.

What are you most excited to do during the QSR Media Conference and Awards in Sydney?
I’m really looking forward to learning from the QSR pricing session. In addition to sitting in on these informative sessions, I’m excited to spend time with current and potential partners to hear more about what’s on their mind and discuss opportunities to partner together.
