MUV Talks: Leaders of tomorrow
Event on 2017-07-12 17:30:00
We are thrilled to announce a new edition of MUV Talks coming in July! This time it will be dedicated to our 'Leaders of tomorrow'.As in every MUV Talks, we'll be inspired by seven speakers PLUS we'll have drinks, pizza and great networking. MUV Talks is a non-profit event. It consists of seven talks for seven minutes, from a diverse set of people with different experiences and points of view (from researchers and scientists to entrepreneurs and investors). It’s point of difference is the energetic and friendly buzz that originates from this style, and our unique approach to networking which welcomes people to break out of their bubble in a non-confronting way – perfect for Kiwis who aren’t always the best at that. Our goal is to create an environment where passionate people can gather together to get things done; to learn, network and share knowledge. Introducing our awesome speakers!
