Getting involved in campus life can be an exciting and rewarding experience. Opportunities to attend events, conferences, study tours and the like are valuable ways to get more from your degree, and the annual TEDxQUT is no exception. Since 2013, TEDxQUT has provided a platform for students, alumni and members of the community to take the spotlight and share their passion, innovation and creativity. Like the renowned TED organisation that it is associated with, TEDxQUT is devoted to ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’. The difference between TED and TEDx events is that TEDx events are organised independently to allow us to hear from more speakers from different corners of the globe. This year the theme surrounding the remarkable ideas was ‘Do It Yourself’.
It has been over a month since the Brisbane Model United Nations (MUN) Conference 2018, but it still feels like yesterday! As someone who does not participate a lot in university activities, I was very hesitant to join at first after hearing about it at a Business Advantage Entrepreneurship session. However, I thought it would enhance my international business acumen as part of my degree, so I went for it! It did exactly that and so, so much more!
