2018 Backpack to Briefcase: MQ Campus

Date:
30 July 2018

Time:
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Location
Macquarie University Incubator, 8 Hadenfeld Avenue


Welcome to a new segment within the Backpack to Briefcase Series – The Challenge.

The Challenge is simple: work together in a group to identify a problem, come up with a solution and implementation plan, and provide a short 3-minute pitch in front of a panel of accomplished (but friendly) experts.

Winning the challenge is the reason you should participate, but it’s so much more. The Challenge is about getting out of your comfort zone, bouncing ideas off people you’ve never met, hearing fresh perspectives by thinking outside the box and practicing your problem solving and communication skills.

It’s about collaboration, communication, innovation and teamwork – skills you need in your personal and professional lives.

The topic for this challenge is the ‘Workplaces of the Future’. What does our workplace of the future look like? Is it heavily focused on workplace culture, big data, or technology? Or is it work flexibility or the physical environment?

We invite all our Macquarie University Alumni to join us to workshop your ideas with fellow alumni over a light dinner.

This event is proudly sponsored by Macquarie University. Free parking will be available on campus.

Don’t forget your business cards for networking.

To register, please email events@mq.edu.au

Are you ready for the challenge?
