QLD Current and Future Leaders 2023
- Personal & Professional Development
- CPD: 2 Hour(s)
Great careers are built on more than just hard work. They’re defined by how well we handle adversity and navigate change and are shaped by the choices we make along the way.
Here’s your chance to learn from the very best in the industry. At Current & Future Leaders you’ll talk directly to some of Australia’s most experienced senior leaders about your career, the industry, and how to make the best choices for your future.
How it works
At each table there will be a small group of young professionals and one experienced leader. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about your career, receive valuable advice about how to make the most of the opportunities ahead of you and listen to what challenges your peers are currently facing.
Throughout the night you will have the opportunity to change tables, giving you the chance to get a range of different perspectives and meet with fellow attendees. With two networking sessions you’ll also have time to search out and pick the brains of the senior leaders you admire as well as build your network with peers. Enjoy food and drinks on us.
Why you should attend
Our Current & Future Leaders event allows young professionals to build their skills in leadership, rapport building, collaboration and networking with the opportunity to exchange ideas.
Sponsorship is available for this event, if you are interested in more information please contact our events team for further details.
