About 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 genYOU Inspire series helps young people to stand out of the crowd by giving them the chance to learn additional traits, attitudes and skills which are necessary to thrive in the workplace.

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.

There isn’t a strict dress code to abide by, however wearing smart casual attire is definitely the recommended outfit of the day … AKA dress for comfort with a little bit of style!
I can't make it for the whole session, can I still come?
Absolutely. Whilst we would love for you to join us for the whole session, we understand that sometimes you have commitments that just can’t move. You will be able to arrive late to a session and leave early.
