Raising the bar event - expressions of interest

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters in partnership with Raising the Bar has delivered two Raising the Bar Adelaide events and the inaugural Raising the Bar Entrepreneurship event—the first of its kind delivered across the globe.

The next ‘Raising the Bar Adelaide’ event is scheduled for Tuesday 20 October 2020. The event will be designed to ensure that it adheres to all social distancing restrictions applicable at the time.

Once again, the event will transform the City’s landscape into a campus for one night, where notable professors and thought leaders will give talks in some of our City’s top bars and pubs, creating an unexpected environment for discussion and supplying the community with direct access to cutting-edge content.

This year’s event will follow the same format, with 20 insightful talks on one night; across 10 different venues in the City. Each venue will host 2 sessions, the first at 6.30pm, and the second at 8.30pm.

The 2018 and 2019 events saw a range of fantastic speakers including Forensic Psychologist Luke Broomhall, Founder of The NeuroTech Institute Fiona Kerr and local resident and Ophthalmologist James Muecke, who went on to be named Australian of the Year for 2020.

We are excited to put together another standout program for the local community, so if you know someone within the faculty that is engaging, with an interesting profession and exciting story to tell, please encourage them to express their interest to be a speaker at this year’s Raising the Bar Adelaide event.
