Publicis Mojo has launched a new campaign for the University of Queensland Business School which gives business people the opportunity to share a stage with Sir Richard Branson at an upcoming university event.
The program is facilitated by LinkedIn and sees business students and professionals able to nominate themselves or a LinkedIn connection to join a panel with the Virgin founder at Next? The Future of Business Q&A, on May 9.
The panel will discuss a series of interactive questions on the future of global business.
Nominees are required to submit a 25 word submission via the events’ website nextquestion.com.au and by doing so will also go into the draw to win a two night stay at Sir Richard Branson’s Noosa retreat, Makepeace Island.
One of the five LinkedIn members most recommended by their peers will be chosen as the 5th panellist for the event by the UQ Business School.
Sir Richard Branson is the most “followed” thought leader on LinkedIn’s Influencer Program that was first launched in October 2013, with more than 1.5 million followers currently.
Joining Sir Richard Branson on the panel is the dean of UQ Business School Professor Andrew Griffiths, acclaimed futurist Tim Longhurst and director of Rockcote and winner of the 2012 Australian Financial Review's Top 100 Women of Influence awards, Chris Cameron.
Questions to the panel will also be accepted from the business community via the nextquestion.com.au website. The five most thought provoking questions will be posed to the panel on the day and the question nominators will win a VIP ticket to the event and meet Sir Richard Branson.
More than 1500 business leaders will attend the event, drawn from the public and private sector, government representatives, students from Brisbane’s key high schools and UQ Business School alumni.
To nominate a future business leader for the NEXT? The Future of Business Q&A panel, post a question for Sir Richard Branson or purchase tickets to the event visit www.nextquestion.com.au
