Our full-day Business Connect workshops, called 'breakthrough days', bring together corporate professionals at intensive working sessions facilitated by world-class corporate educators.

Discover, discuss and debate the very latest in thought leadership and come away with a renewed mindset and fresh ideas to implement in your business.

Organised by our QUT Graduate School of Business, these workshops showcase the latest research and address difficult and complex challenges facing leaders, managers and executives today.

Who should participate

Leaders, managers and executives of mid-size to large organisations seeking to extend their thought leadership capabilities.

If Brisbane isn't convenient for you, we also offer a Canberra Business Connect Leadership Development program.
