For the 18th Annual General Meeting of the Geelong Region LLEN, we are pleased to have Jen Cromarty and Jack Nyhof in conversation, discussing living, learning and working in a clever and creative region. Facilitated by Dr Fiona Gray, Jen and Jack will explore what it means to be a clever and creative region, how our region can support young people becoming the new creatives; and how business leaders and young people can work together to create a bright future for our region.
At the conclusion of their discussion, a short Q&A will be conducted.
