As part of the CAUSINDY partnership with the UTS:Insearch, we are excited to announce that representatives from the UTS will be facilitating delegate discussion groups at this year’s conference. The discussion groups, each comprising delegates of different countries and areas of expertise, will be an opportunity for delegates to create ideas and propositions which will help to shape the nature of the bilateral relationship.
Delegate proposals from CAUSINDY 2013 were formed into the CAUSINDY 2013 report (link) which were sent out to leading organisations and governmental bodies such as the AIBC, IABC, and AusTrade. The delegate ideas from last year covered different aspects of the relationship and included SME mentorships, cultural exchange hubs in both countries, and elite internships for youth.
On the final day of the conference, delegates will have the opportunity to present their findings to a panel of experts, made up of representatives from AusTrade and UTS. Delegates will then take charge of their recommendations, following through with them beyond the conference to create real impact on bilateral relations.
