Macquarie University Thought Leadership Series

The Macquarie University Thought Leadership series is an innovative initiative by the Faculty of Business and Economics to provide cutting edge thinking and ground-breaking ideas. The series was designed to address financial, economic and political problems and to create a community and collaboration platform of thought leaders that engage in intellectual debate around leadership. The seminars will be held at either Macquarie University's North Ryde campus or at distinct CBD locations.

At North Ryde, the Faculty of Business and Economics is at the heart of one of Australia's leading high-technology hubs. Well known firms include Microsoft, Fuji, Xerox, Sony, Foxtel, Optus, Cochlear, CSIRO, Philips, Johnson and Johnson and many others. Our CBD partners are right at the centre of Australia's financial precinct which is HQ to many leading financial and professional services companies including AMP, Commonwealth Bank, Macquarie Bank and Deloitte.

Keep current with inspirational ideas, penetrating insights, and practical advice from industry experts and join us at Macquarie University's Thought Leadership series.
