In October 2018, Culture Bridge hosted the Young Global Business Leader case competition finals with several notable guest judges, including BCG Australia and New Zealand Managing Partner, Andrew Clark; and Executive Director at the Department of Education, Gene Reardon.
Culture Bridge hosted two panel events discussing and debating the importance of culture in Australia and the worlds of Business and Education.
In May 2018, Culture Bridge's first Bridge Panel event provided students the opportunity to listen to experts discuss and debate these issues. Our panelists included Andrew Clark (BCG Managing Partner Australia and New Zealand), Helen Sawczak (CEO of Australia China Business Council) and Mona Cheung (Bi-cultural business expert).
In September 2019, Culture Bridge hosted its second flagship Bridge Panel. Our panelists included Andrew Clark (BCG Managing Partner Australia and New Zealand), Vick Pillay (Managing Director of Mind Tribes) and Samantha Marangell (Associate Lecturer in Higher Education at the Melbourne CSHE)
