Pop-up workshops

We work with UQ course coordinators to deliver tailored two-hour entrepreneurial workshops across all disciplines.

In 2022, Ventures delivered 76 Pop-up workshops across campus to over 3,500 participants including students, staff, alumni, and industry partners. 

Our workshops are structured around five key concepts and focus on practical problem-solving, using industry-relevant challenges. Ventures Pop-ups will help develop students’ entrepreneurial mindset, empowering them to be creative, adaptable, tolerant of ambiguity and risk, and able to learn from failure. The skills your students develop can help them be successful in whatever they choose to do.

Our workshops:

  • are delivered by the UQ Ventures team during lectures, tutorials or as an additional event
  • cover five different topics developed in partnership with the Business School
  • are co-designed in consultation with course coordinators
  • use industry-relevant challenges

4. Pitching and storytelling workshop

Compelling communication is a key skill for the future of work.

Whether we are pitching a business idea, presenting a project to our colleagues, or talking to customers, we need to be able to interest, convince and influence with our words.

In this workshop your students will:

  • understand the fundamentals of narrative patterns and tools
  • learn how to communicate their message in a simple and concise way
  • learn how to build a compelling story and how to persuade their audience
  • practice and master the art of storytelling

This workshop is ideal for classes where students need to present or pitch to an audience, or can complement courses that explore narrative storytelling in a professional context.
