Our story
Every year we deliver a range of business focused leadership forums, employability workshops and career information sessions that inspire and challenge our student cohort. These take place both on and off campus, in-person, virtually and globally.

We cover a wide range of topics such as job search preparations; career insights and information; exploring shifting industry trends; social impact and corporate social responsibility; technologies impacting on business; leadership in a globalised economy; and various business careers topics.

How does it work?
We run a cycle of events, and secure speakers and facilitators that are leaders in their field who will inspire our students. In addition, we welcome organisations to deliver tailored workshops to our students.

This sounds great. What’s next?
