As the provider of the leading higher education pathway to the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), UTS:INSEARCH is deeply committed to encouraging the development of young people around the world, particularly through education and the exchange of ideas and knowledge.

UTS:INSEARCH Managing Director, Alex Murphy, is delighted to be involved with CAUSINDY, encouraging young professionals in Indonesia and Australia to form close ties and increase mutual understanding and respect, for the benefit of both countries.

“I have been very fortunate to have spent three years living in Indonesia while studying, and later teaching English,” says Mr Murphy. “This experience deepened my understanding of the profound value of building strong bilateral relations and enhanced my respect and appreciation for Indonesian culture.

“I have benefited enormously from my experience of living in Jakarta with an Indonesian family in my 20s and continue this commitment by encouraging Indonesian students to study in Australia, and by engaging with the business and diplomatic communities,” he says.

Mr Murphy has been invited to attend CAUSINDY in September and will be helping delegates to develop recommendations to contribute to the ongoing positive exchange between young professionals in Australia and Indonesia.

Mr Murphy also welcomed CAUSINDY’s Indonesian delegate, Mirza Natadisastra, to the impressive panel of young delegates attending the conference. As a graduate of the University of Technology, Sydney, Mr Natadisastra studied journalism in Sydney and is well positioned to bring insights from both countries to the forum’s discussions.

Mr Natadisastra is currently a research analyst at BowerGroupAsia’s Indonesia office, where he provides analysis, regulatory research, and supports IT, finance, and consumer goods companies. He assists companies to develop integrated in-country strategies aligned with their overall business objectives and geared at solving business challenges and operations. He helps companies to understand Indonesia better by building relationships with relevant government stakeholders. Mr Natadisastra has a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from the University of Technology in Sydney and a Master of Arts in Digital Media from London Metropolitan University.
