The Deakin University MBA Alumni Chapter is excited to be hosting MBA Alumnus Joanne Plummer (Chaiman of Barwon Water and co-owner of Business in Heels) as a keynote speaker in a discussion on entrepreneurship. This will be followed by a panel discussion which will include Julia Van Der Sommen (founder of Sample Room).

With a chance to grill a panel of forward thinking entrepreneurs on their business acumen this is a great opportunity for you to learn and develop.

This event is supported by our SPARK@Deakin project. SPARK@Deakin is an experiential program designed to give students, staff and alumni an opportunity to see and relate to the early stages of the entrepreneurial path. The program includes an opportunity to pitch for up to $20 000 funding, mentorship and office space as well as a series of entrepreneurial events, focusing on educating and training aspirant entrepreneurs regarding how to approach a project from a commercial perspective.
