You can find the transcript on the Business Council of Australia website.

Career Cafés

The GMA is partnering with UWA Alumni Relations to present Career Cafés this year.

Career Cafés are a unique opportunity to meet and talk with industry leaders, including a panel of coaches, professionals and trend watchers who share their tips on what you need to succeed. Each café consists of a panel discussion followed by informal mentoring conversations.

Mentors for the event are drawn from the UWA alumni network, which itself is made up of Perth’s career establishment – individuals who are well up the ladder and eager to help a fellow graduate along.

Industry Presentations and Panel Discussions

The GMA presents a range of industry presentations and panel discussions on topical business issues. These events feature prominent business leaders and bring our members together for thought provoking discussion. Examples of topics of past events include digital disruption, the Western Australian building industry, from innovation to commercialisation and building your professional brand.

The GMA also partners with other organisations to provide GMA members exposure to other industries and networking opportunities. For example, in partnership with the UWA Business School and its Young Alumni Network, the GMA hosted a presentation by Mr Adrian Fini on the redevelopment of the State Buildings.


These events have no formal agenda. Instead, they are a chance for members to catch-up over a relaxing drink.

They’re free and are held at Perth CBD locations such as the Western Australia Club.
