If you haven’t yet had an opportunity to attend, please consider registering for a Macquarie Advantage staff workshop.
So far, over 300 staff have participated in a workshop and an additional two workshops have been scheduled:

- Thursday 12 October, 1:30pm – 3pm (G03, 1 Wally’s Walk)
These workshops will be facilitated by the Dean of Students, Professor Mariella Herberstein, and the PVC Education, Professor Taryn Jones.
