Gen A | Market Diversification Masterclass: Gen A in an Era of Global ChangeVIEW EVENT DETAILS
‘Diversification’ has no doubt become the business buzzword of the last few years. As we enter a new era defined by intensifying geopolitical uncertainties and disrupted global supply chains, countries and exporters are looking to manage risk through market diversification. But how does market diversification work in practice? And how will this global trend impact young Australians in their pursuit of an Asia-focused career?
A first for our Gen A network, join us for a Gen A-led interactive masterclass, featuring break-outs rooms and networking, as Emily Wood and Isabelle Meere, Global Engagement Managers at the Australian Trade and Investment Commission, present their latest project and invite Gen As to share their own experiences of market diversification in action.
Date: Thursday 30 June 2022
Time: 10 - 11 a.m. AEST
Location: Online via Zoom
This event is for Gen A members only. For further enquiries contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
