Adelaide, South Australia 5000

With an ever increasing level of competition in the job market, it is paramount for any professional to distinguish themselves from the crowd. Unfortunately, the skills and traits that allow one to do so, are not taught at any university, and the onus is on the individual to learn these whilst ‘on the job’.

Join us to hear from a distinguished panel of speakers who will share experiences on a variety of topics within the career development spectrum. This career event will be unlike those held previously. The panel will delve into ‘taboo topics’ in the workplace.
