Learning from the best in the business

Entrepreneurship and family business students are not just learning from a textbook at Bond University, they are learning directly from successful business men and women.

Recently, two generations of the Dennis Family shared their entrepreneurial journey with students and the wisdom they have gained from over 50 years of experience.

Founder Bert Dennis and his son Grant presented about their experience in the property industry and the path they took to become Victoria’s largest private property developer. The entrepreneurial spirit of the family continues with a third generation member currently studying at Bond.

Willow Ware managing director Ralph Wilson also took the time to share his experience with both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Willow Ware is an iconic Australian manufacturing company which has a proud history of over 100 years. Mr Wilson shared about how the company has had to reinvent itself multiple times to keep ahead of the challenges in the Australian manufacturing industry.

These lectures are one way of ensuring that our students are exposed to real world companies with real world challenges. They also help our students to identify how the theories taught in class have been applied to great Australian businesses.
