Alumni Lecture Series: Tracey Vieira, CEO, Screen Queensland
BEL Faculty's Alumni Lecture Series is a series of free events featuring speakers, often past UQ alumni, who are leaders in business, finance, economics, entrepreneurship, tourism and law. They are held in the heart of Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. You can expect thought-provoking discussions, engaging topics and networking with other UQ alumni over light refreshments. We invite you to join us and experience your alumni community.
