Curtin Singapore has hosted an inaugural discussion as part of a new thought-provoking series that aims to connect tomorrow’s graduates with leaders in their field.

The first Thought Leaders Series, titled ‘Developing a career and leading business in a rapidly changing world’, was presented by Cistri Regional Director Peter Hyland last night.

Curtin Singapore Pro Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Linley Lord said the Thought Leaders Series would be held each trimester for Curtin students and graduates in Singapore.

“Curtin Singapore and the University’s Alumni Singapore Chapter are excited to announce this new initiative, the Thought Leaders Series,” Professor Lord said.

“The series aims to connect students with organisational leaders and alumni to stimulate discussion, debate and critical thinking whilst exploring various topics including leadership, business, innovation and entrepreneurship.”

Professor Lord said Mr Hyland discussed the opportunities that are emerging for university graduates in the 21st century.

“Peter shared his story of progressing from a graduate government employee to working for global consultancies, and leading the growth of a new venture into a significant international business,” Professor Lord.

“He provided Curtin students and graduates valuable insights into identifying opportunities, developing career mentors and dealing with challenges when growing a business, offering them additional tips to support their personal and professional development.”

The inaugural Thought Leaders Series was held at Curtin Singapore last night.
