PRIA QLD Event | Meet the Industry | The Secrets to Success

Forging your path to success straight out of uni might seem daunting, but rest assured — we have brought together a ‘brains trust’ to help steer you in the right direction.

Join three of Queensland’s leading PR practitioners and PRIA Fellows as they share their secrets to success at our annual Meet the Industry event. Hear about their career highs and lows, and importantly, their top tips to get ahead of the curve.
