Background:

  • I worked as Principal Adviser to the Vice-Chancellor at RMIT in Melbourne for 7 seven years, so I know the University and its operations and philosophy very well. I was also involved in the establishment of the campuses in Vietnam.
  • For the last 2 years, every 2 months or so, I have been presenting a session to RMIT students about Chambers of Commerce, AusCham and Business Networking.  It is a one hour lecture which includes role plays teaching students what to do, what to say and how to behave at business networking events such as AusCham’s Sundowners.  I recognise that RMIT graduates are a large group of potential business leaders in Vietnam and of course potential AusCham members.
  • As a result of these sessions I was invited to present as a special guest at Careers Week on 31 October from 1200 until 1330.
  • I have also been actively working with RMIT recognising their importance as a member and sponsor of AusCham and they have already sponsored one Sundowners event, and will sponsor another in November 2013.

 

Notes:

  • The presentation was well received and students were active and happily participated in the role plays.
  • I will attend the Careers Week trade fair on Friday 1 November and I will be invited to the RMIT Graduation ceremony, as I was last year.
Action Items (If any):

  • Continuing work with the Careers Centre and encouragement of further involvement.
