Our Be Your Own Boss (BYOB) seminar series aims to help take your bright idea from concept to reality.

The seminars cover everything from how to build a great business, to how to pitch your idea in front of a boardroom or live audience.

These free evening seminars and workshops are open to all students. Whether you just have an idea, want to take your business ideas further, or advance your skills to support and shape your career, our sessions can help.

If you attend enough BYOB seminars, you might win a place at our two-day careers boot camp!

Our speakers

Delivered by successful entrepreneurs from a wide range of fields, these seminars will give you invaluable hands-on tips and advice on team building, presenting, pitching, marketing, and video production, as well as essential technical knowledge to help you develop your business idea.

Networking

It's not what you know, it’s who you know.

Networking can provide you with a wealth of opportunities. That’s why we make sure there's time after each seminar for you to network with other students, speakers, academics, and business owners and make important connections for the future.

We advertise upcoming sessions on the ARU Career Centre website (login required).
