GSA: Cuppa with Industry Professionals series

Discussions over a cup of coffee have been one the most familiar ways for people to connect, share their thoughts and ask questions on various topics.

Discussions over a cup of coffee have been one the most familiar ways for people to connect, share their thoughts and ask questions on various topics.

So, we at GSA believe that we should bring that experience to the digital space to encourage interaction between industry professionals and the business school students at UNSW. We call it the “Cuppa with Industry professionals” that happens fortnightly throughout term 3 virtually.


Each event has different speakers from various backgrounds. The aim is to emulate the experience of networking over coffee. Through these events we met leaders from different industries, gain insight into the job market and develop our network. In this interactive session, the speaker introduces themselves to the group and any information they want to share about their job/industry, followed by an informal coffee chat with the audience being allowed to ask any question to the speaker.

One formal rule was that every participant must bring with them a cup of coffee/tea/own drink to be part of the event.
