Event description

Description

Join more than 100 students and practitioners at the seventh annual Victorian PR, Media & Communication Student Forum. This year’s theme is celebrity and publicity.

Held at Victoria University’s Flinders Street campus, the day-long event will give students the opportunity to meet and hear from senior practitioners and media personalities.

The day will be broken up into two sessions:

The morning sessions will involve presentations from practitioners in a range of sectors. This will include speed discussion sessions where students will discuss key topics with practitioners.

The afternoon session will involve “open house” sessions in which students will visit practitioners in their office to give a greater sense of context to the morning presentations.

The Forum will conclude with a networking event.

Tickets include morning tea, lunch, open house session, and finger food/drinks at the networking session.

This event is not to be missed for students wanting to broaden their industry exposure and networking circles! Past attendees have secured internships and full-time work from the contacts they’ve made at the event.
