About this event

The Executive Education event series offers the opportunity for the regional business community, Executive Education and MBA learners as well as the University community to come together and hear from a diverse and inspiring speaker line-up, from the business world through to the latest practice-based research.

We hope the event series will bring new insights and perspectives that will challenge your thinking and stimulate debate.
