Public Lectures

These are ad-hoc 2-3 hour sessions held to facilitate thought leadership on contemporary topics that engage industry. Many of our speakers are leaders in their field and have something of special interest to convey that serves to inform, as well as to stimulate debate. Our lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include topics that affect the daily operations of organisations and institutions. All lectures are free and open to all, with spaces allocated on a first-come first-served basis. This information will be provided to the public as soon as lecturers are confirmed and scheduled.
