Event Description

Full Description:
Student speaker - Andrew Barnes, Rhodes Scholar and PhD candidate, The University of Queensland, Former student of Cannon Hill Anglican College

Young entrepreneur, Andrew Barnes is reaching international audiences with his company GO1.

The company is backed by investors including Y Combinator, Oxford University, and Shark Tank judge Steve Baxter. Y Combinator is an international start-up incubator that has helped launch more than 1000 companies, including Dropbox, Airbnb and Reddit.

Keynote speaker - Ben Millbourne, MasterChef Finalist and celebrity chef, entrepreneur and community leader, Bachelor Applied Science Human Movement Studies - Education, The University of Queensland 2004

Ben embodies all that UQ aspires to see in its young alumni: a passion for science and education, a desire to create change and a commitment to strengthening the wellbeing of those who live, play and eat within his local, Australian and global reach. He provides an outstanding role model of young entrepreneurialism and a testimony to the diversity of employment and career pathways that result from undergraduate study at UQ. For Ben, harnessing the joys of cooking to promote community science education is both an inheritance from his time at UQ, and his future legacy to his community.

Please note this event is for current year 12 high school students.
