Raising the Bar
If there’s one event to go to this year, make it Raising The Bar Adelaide.
But it’s not just any event. It’s a global award winning event that hosts 20 speakers (delivered by notable professors, economists, marketers and surgeons) talking about various topics from creativity and crime to privacy and parental involvement in kids sport.
It’s happening one night only on Tuesday 13 August throughout 10 bars in the City with the first session at 6.30pm, followed by an 8.30pm session. The one hour gap leaves enough time in between to enjoy a meal, grab a drink with friends and even catch a second talk at another venue!
