Hosted by Chairman, Duncan Forbes, and Committee Members of AmCham QLD’s NEXT: Network for Future Leaders, we present this special Networking Event tailored for young executives and professionals.

The NEXT series of events are designed by AmCham’s NEXT: Network for Future Leaders Committee specifically for attendees who consider themselves young, are interested in advancing their career and are serious about taking the next step.

For the innovative and passionate future leaders, this opportunity will give you the competitive advantage to engage, tap into the world of entrepreneurship, outperform competitors or discuss creating new markets by successfully responding and developing capabilities to enhance customer service. As a future leader you can also use this event to discuss business ideas, start-up methodologies, solutions, learn about the global entrepreneurship movement and valuable business opportunities in America-Australia.
