The Deakin University MBA Alumni Chapter is excited to host MBA alumnus Joanne Plummer (Chairman of Barwon Water and co-owner of Business in Heels) as keynote speaker for a discussion on entrepreneurship. This will be followed by a panel discussion with Julia Van Der Sommen (founder of Sample Room) and Danielle Stewart, Managing Director of ‘Book in a Day.
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.

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.
