Business over breakfast

first_imgWith their corporate wear on and an egg and bacon muffin in hand, young Greek Australian students will be schmoozing some of the country’s most successful Greek Australian businesspeople. Tomorrow, AHEPA’s Achilleas Youth and NUGAS Victoria will be hosing their first Business Breakfast and have booked names like George Donikian, Olyvia Nikou and Chris Leptos.The trio will be part of a question and answer panel, taking a number of questions about their career and their successes while also giving tips to the young audience. They will also speak on the topic ‘Entering the work force in a globalising Australia’.The initiative has come at a time when many students and graduates are struggling to get a foot in the door of the working world, and the organising committee believes the impression people can make at these events sometimes works better than a good resume. Achilleas Youth President Jiannis Tsaousis used the Greek community of America as inspiration for the event, which has seen great networking opportunities arise.“AHEPA USA has enabled young people to network, gain access to scholarships and develop leadership capabilities, and we hope to achieve similar things in an Australian context,” he said.NUGAS Victoria President Tass Sgardelis says the event has been something NUGAS has wanted for a long time, and is the first start for them moving forward from their dinner dances and cruises event calendar.“This is NUGAS’ opportunity to present itself as the professional face of Greek Australian university students and deliver the networking opportunities that our community needs,” he says.“Our members are actively seeking innovative networking events like the Business Breakfast that add variety to the NUGAS calendar.” During the two hour long event, a number of industries will have a presence, including banking and finance, law, medicine and healthcare, information technology, marketing, hospitality and construction.A full Crown Signature Breakfast will be served, consisting of an individual warm breakfast, continental specialities, tea, coffee and juices. Tickets are still available and cost $40 for students and $50 for adults. Corporate tables are also available from $450. The event begins at 7.30 am at the River Room in the Crown Palladium.
