Young adults looking to make a move into the business world are encouraged to listen, mingle and learn at the Rockingham Kwinana Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals event.

The joint venture with Murdoch University aims to give business owners, managers and university students under 30 the opportunity to network with other young entrepreneurs and undergraduates.

Murdoch University business lecturer Jean Wootton said the event would be a win-win for both students and professionals.

“There are two sides, you have both the university students who need to work with people in industry and you have the people in industry who I’m hoping are going to pick up some of the ideas the university students are gaining through their skills,” she said.

Mrs Wootton said she hoped the event would inspire and encourage young people.

“The young people in this area are our future, if we are going to build up business around here we need them to know that they have the opportunity to do these things,” she said.

Tomorrow night, young professionals will have the chance to hear from guest speakers Jeremy Chetty, co-founder of Student Edge, Mike Locke from Digital Services 97.3 Coast FM and communications and human excellence engineer Kelly Prime.

Host Zac Stent was the first RKCC Young Professional member.

RKCC chief executive Tony Solin said the event gave the chamber the opportunity to encourage young people to learn more about business.

Mr Solin said RKCC hoped to hold four Young Professionals events a year.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their business cards for networking purposes.
