Zoom in with your own lunch, your own questions and a hunger to learn while we hear from a selection of industry experts.
When: Every Thursday
Time: 12pm - 1pm
The person we’re most interested in speaking to every Lunch and Learn session is you, and the person QUT Entrepreneurship wishes to serve and provide connection, learning and life opportunities for is you. This session is dedicated to you so that you can tell us about how we can deliver these sessions the best way possible, as well as the benefits of being part of the QUT Entrepreneurship community you’d appreciate, the care you’d value, how we can make our environment the safest, most helpful and supportive community we can.
We want to make our physical and online spaces ones where you find satisfaction of your needs as a member of the QUT community, in spaces that are fun, flexible and happy. The strength of the QUT Entrepreneurship community has long been the sense of family we feel when we’re connected, and the knowledge and opportunities that we can share – come and join us to share your opinions, ideas and suggestions for making it the best it can be for you.
