Innovation Events

RGU Innovation events focus on equipping students, staff, alumni and others with future-relevant skills, emphasising the importance of innovation in both entrepreneurial endeavours and organisational roles.

We host practical workshops, inspiring events, and skill sessions to support the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders. 

We offer many varied events throughout the year: 

  • Innovation Masterclasses - Hear from inspirational speakers and industry leaders as they share their stories and provide valuable insights into successful careers and innovative thinking. 
  • Enterprise Skills sessions - Learn essential skill needed to start and develop your own business or side hustle. 
  • Regional events - Workshops and networking sessions held locally across the region, both across the city and shire for everyone.
