Business Leaders Breakfast

These annual events in Melbourne and Sydney provide young alumni with an opportunity to learn from the experience of senior business leaders within the alumni network. Joining us as table hosts, business leaders will share key learnings from their career journey and answer your burning questions about leadership.

See photos from the 2017 Melbourne event and the fantastic line-up of table hosts.

If you have just moved to Sydney, make sure your details are up to date to ensure you receive an invitation.

Career Kick-Off Series

The Career Kick-Off series runs twice a year and is designed to help young alumni develop the soft skills that are important to master for career progression. New graduates are encouraged to attend to learn skills about entering the workplace. Held in Melbourne’s CBD, each even will be filmed and shared online with our global alumni network.

Watch the video of our first event in the series, Mastering Difficult Conversations - 5 July 2016.

Creating Future Leaders Event Series

Each event in this series brings an inspiring individual or group to campus to share their experiences of leadership with students and young alumni. This event runs twice yearly.

Alumni Career Panel

A panel of alumni at different stages of their career share their journey with young alumni and give their top tips on successfully navigating the way to success across different roles and industries. The theme of the 2016 event was Rising to Challenges; watch the video recording of the panel here.

Young Alumni Drinks

The Young Alumni Committee hosts casual drinks throughout the year in Melbourne and our fantastic volunteers in Sydney host drinks twice yearly.  Attending is a great way to expand your networks with like-minded young professionals in a casual setting.
