It's not everyday that you get to meet and have an in-depth conversation about your career with of some of the most highly regarded financial leaders in Australia.

Great careers are built on more than just hard work. They’re defined by how well you are able to handle adversity, navigate change; and shaped by the choices you make along the way. 

Here’s your chance to learn from the very best in the industry 
At Leaders in our Midst you’ll talk directly to some of Australia’s most experienced senior leaders about your career, the industry, and how to make the best choices for your future.

How it works
At each table there will be a small group young professionals and one experienced senior leader. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about your career, receive valuable advice about how to make the most of the opportunities ahead of you, and listen to what challenges your peers are currently facing.

Throughout the night, you will have the opportunity to change tables, giving you the chance to get a range of different perspectives and meet with other fellow attendees. With two networking sessions on the night, you’ll also have time to search out and pick the brains of the senior leaders you admire and also build those all-important network with your peers.
