Professionals and academics can…

  • Meet potential future employees,
  • Impart knowledge and wisdom to the next generation,
  • Meet someone who is looking for guidance and mentoring,
  • Find out what students of today are doing and thinking; and of course
  • Demonstrate your finesse at transportation trivia in a quiz that will take place over a sit-down dinner at Fountains Restaurant at the Box Hill Institute.
