Backpack to Briefcase: Sydney - Tuesday 15 October
Beer with the Boss
Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a CEO? How do they get the confidence, grit, interpersonal skills and vision to make the tough decisions? Or, are you thinking about getting your first job or what your next step is?
Join us for Backpack to Briefcase - Beer with the Boss where you can ask those questions and more to high-profile alumni leaders in a fast-paced speed-networking event.
Beer with the Boss is an exciting professional networking event for #mqalumni where you can connect with senior alumni with impressive job titles and even more impressive career journeys.
Listen to their career stories, hear their tips and tricks of the trade and ask any questions you might have, all while building your professional network with peers and leaders.
The concept for Beer with the Boss is simple: relax, grab a drink and speed network with a boss in a group. Each session will be timed to 10 minutes, a bell will ring, and you will move onto the next boss.
So what are you waiting for? Bring your business cards and prepare one or two questions you might want to ask a boss!

Creative and critical thinking is the future
The importance of developing thinking skills is fast becoming the focus of education systems across the world. What were once soft skills are now core skills, essential for students to navigate the world and its ever-changing technological and social landscape. As teachers, how can we encourage learners to be able to "think about thinking" in answering the big questions?
