The business world is changing rapidly and becoming more volatile, uncertain and complex. Leaders are at risk of making flawed decisions based on the latest fads or popular ideas.

Professor Julie Cogin, UQ Business School's Dean and Head of School, and Sally Calder, KPMG's Partner of People and Change, will discuss what leadership qualities are required to shape and steer organisations in this age of change. They will address what this means for aspiring leaders of the future and discuss how current leaders can prepare themselves.

Join us to gain a unique insight into evidence-based management practices across areas such as hiring, teamwork, elevating employee performance and driving innovation.

Guests will also have the opportunity to network with fellow UQ alumni and industry guests over drinks and canapes.
