genYOU Inspire
genYOU Inspire is a series of short events that aim to help Brisbane's young people unleash their potential at work and in life. Now in its third year, the Inspire series helps young people to stand out of the crowd by giving them the chance to learn key traits, attitudes and skills which are necessary to thrive in the workplace.

generationYOU was born from a passion to help young people unlock their potential and build on additional skills they may not gain during a University degree. Through the genYOU Inspire series, we are able to connect students with Industry legends who share #NoFilter advice on entering the workplace and the skills they need to create and manage a successful career. 
Proudly presented by Brisbane City Council.
Brisbane City Council is committed to nurturing innovation and investing in a strong economy with more jobs right across Brisbane. The 2020 genYOU Inspire program offers young people opportunities to develop their employment skills and make an immediate impact for our city's local businesses.

We don't know what we don't know, including what the job market will look like in 3-5 years. The only way to remain relevant is to cultivate a tool box of transferrable skills which will allow you to hop from one job/role to another.
