We are delighted to invite you to a professional development seminar on the art of networking.

If you are interested in career progression, developing and strengthening business connections, or increasing access to job opportunities, then this is the event for you!

We are most fortunate to have secured Deakin Alumnus John Karagounis, CEO of The CEO Circle, to present at this event. John will provide practical insight, guidance, and valuable tips on the art of networking.

John Karagounis

John Karagounis is a passionate thought leader, celebrated author and keynote speaker, participating and engaging with some of the world’s brightest minds in hundreds of exclusive, confidential forums around the country.

John started his career in the financial services industry, winning numerous state and national awards. He eventually found his niche in private wealth management and held a number of senior executive roles in two of Australia’s leading financial institutions and in a global wealth management business. During his twenty-year career in financial services, he held a number of board positions and was a true advocate for the industry.

John’s ability to connect and engage with people, his commitment and determination to help make a difference, led John to The CEO Circle, Australia’s leading exclusive peer group for business leaders. John purchased The CEO Circle in February 2008 and has never looked back.

In addition to his career achievements, John has been on the judging panel of The CEO Magazine’s Executive of the Year awards since they commenced in 2012.  This is one of Australia’s most prestigious business awards event, recognising the individual excellence of senior executives.

A dedicated supporter of numerous charities and causes throughout Australia and overseas, John takes great pride in continuing to support those most in need.
