Event description

Description

We would like to invite you to a special Monash Business School Alumni Masterclass and Panel Discussion. This event will be hosted by Professor Richard Hall, Deputy Dean, Leadership and Executive Education, and will be facilitated by Professor David Gilbert, Director of Entrepreneurship, Monash Business School, Monash University.

It is happening in San Francisco on Wednesday, 17 July 2019 from 6:00pm to 8:30pm.

There has for some time been debate regarding entrepreneurship as a discipline that can be ‘taught’. Irrespective of whether you sit on one side of the fence or the other, the future of work requires individuals and teams who possess both mindsets and capabilities that are entrepreneurial. Research indicates that individuals will have something in the order of 4-7 careers in their lifetime. An entrepreneurial mindset combined with capabilities that enable individuals (and teams) to be comfortable with ambiguity and to navigate uncertainty, will help facilitate the agility and adaptability required in such dynamic environments.

So what is the current state of play and what are the potential future directions concerning entrepreneurship education? Professor David Gilbert, Director of Entrepreneurship will examine best practice and critical pathways for entrepreneurship education. From a contemporary and practice-based perspective, this Masterclass will discuss the ‘what’ and ‘how’ in developing the required entrepreneurial mindsets and capabilities necessary to fast track new opportunities, better ways of living and alternate ways of doing business. You will also hear perspectives from some distinguished alumni from the Bay Area.

Registration and networking starts at 6.00pm with drinks and canapés being served on arrival. After the discussion, join us for networking with alumni, industry representatives, friends and our Monash students currently visiting Berkeley.

Panelists:

• Mr Andy McKeon, Entrepreneur and Marketing Executive
• Ms Merav Bloch, Head of Expansion and City Operations & Strategy, Opendoor
• Ms Alexandra Kinloch, Executive Leadership Coach and Business Strategist,The Inside Academy
