The AWA Young Water Professionals (QLD) hold a successful networking event in Brisbane

Over 65 young water professionals gathered at the Fox Hotel in South Brisbane on 19 March for an evening dedicated to learning and applying effective networking skills in the industry.

The networking part of the evening was preceded by a panel discussion on the ‘Art of Networking’. A panel of well-respected industry leaders shared their career highlights and gave the participants some tips and tricks to boost their career.

This event was a great opportunity for young water professionals to meet fellow peers from throughout the industry and build their professional network in a relaxed atmosphere.
