The Young Professionals event is an initiative being run in conjunction between Melville Cockburn Chamber of Commerce and Murdoch University. The event aims at bringing together under 35 Business owners, managers, leaders, universities students and the local community. It provides them with the opportunity to network with their peers, exchange ideas and help each other in reaching personal and professional goals. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet young professionals from diverse backgrounds, learn from their experiences, share your aspirations, ask questions and seek advice on how to achieve your own goals.
