The event began with four speakers.  Dr Leonie Walsh Victoria’s Lead Scientist gave insight into her career working with industry. She was followed by David Brown, from Siemens Healthcare, who spoke of industry’s need for skills in new areas;  Dr Jane Ryan who has worked internationally in Big Pharma and is now leading start up Sementis, and Mithran Doraisamy from Telstra who shared his tips for networking.

A lively panel discussion  with Dr Benjamin Schmitt from Siemens, Dr Uma Adash from Ernst and Young, Bill Hill from Hydrix, and Sian Slade from Bristol Myers Squibb followed before sessions of facilitated networking, where the students could  develop and practice pitching, ask questions and meet Industry specialists  and fellow students from  other universities.

 

veski kickstart received an overwhelming positive response from students and veski will continue to offer more events and workshops for Post Docs and PhD students in 2016.
