Digital Delegations

The aim of the Young Entrepreneurs & Leaders Speaker Series is to showcase, inspire, celebrate and connect young entrepreneurs and leaders that are making a difference to their societies.

In 2020-21 we are hosting a series of five digital delegations that bring young Australian experts and speakers to work with those across the ASEAN region. We will host week-long digital delegations and run workshops, Q&As, forums, keynote speeches and events that gather a broad range of society together to discuss important topics of collaboration.
