How do you see Australia 2.0?

We have asked panellists across industry and the arts to 'invent tomorrow'. At this Q&A style panel discussion, our experts will each take five minutes to sketch their vision for Australia in a field they feel passionate about.

No topics are off limits! From the serious to the ridiculous, anything could be on the table.
Don't miss this chance to hear leaders in their fields share their views on a wide range of topics – you might be surprised by what they think! And of course you'll have a chance to voice your own opinions and contribute to the debate.

Melbourne alumni event

Art of media

We are excited to invite you to the launch of our new professional development series in Melbourne.

Our first event will be "The art of media".

At this lunchtime session, you will have the opportunity to meet the presenter of Evenings with Lindy Burns on 774 ABC Melbourne & ABC Victoria, and ask Lindy absolutely anything about the media! The discussion in this session is convened by David Sokulsky of UBS.

Come along and learn how the media operates on a day-to-day basis; how to use this powerful medium to your advantage; and gain insider information from someone with more than 20 years experience in the field.

You don't want to miss this! The event is only available to graduates and there are limited places, so register now.
