Please join us for a lunch with a difference with UQ's 'Leaders of Influence' Series.

The Series engages industry leaders to present to our alumni and community on current and critical issues that impact Australian and global engineering, architecture and technology companies.

The Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Information Technology warmly invites you to attend a special ‘Leaders of Influence’ Series presentation featuring UQ's chemical engineering alumnus, Sandeep Biswas, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Newcrest Mining Ltd.

He began his career with Mount Isa Mines, working in both Australia and Europe. Mr Biswas has also worked for Western Mining in Australia and Rio Tinto in Canada and Australia. Fast forward to January 2014, ​Sandeep joined Newcrest as Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer and was appointed Managing Director and CEO in July the same year. 

As a valued member of the UQ community, part of your 'UQ Advantage' is having access to opportunities to network, engage in lively discussion and hear from thought leaders in the industry. 

A light lunch will be provided from 12:00pm – 12:30pm, prior to the presentation.
