FAQ for Inspire in 5

Why isn’t this a Speed Networking Event too?

Inspire in 5 is an event where speakers give 5-minute presentations to an audience of students and parents. While our speed networking events have been very successful for older students, this event is specifically designed for younger students and as such the format is different. There will be plenty of time after the formal presentations to approach speakers and speak 1-1 with them and we encourage all students to do this!

How will the event be structured?

The event is split into 2 parts: 1.5hrs of presentations and 30mins of informal networking. The presentations commence at 6pm sharp and we ask that you arrive with plenty of time to find a seat. Each speaker will talk for 5 minutes, and there will be several breaks throughout for some games and a chance to get out of your seat. After the presentations have finished, you will have the chance to approach the speakers from the evening and ask any questions you might have during an informal networking session with light snacks.

What is the venue?

State Library Theatre – 25 Francis St Perth

What about dinner?

We recommend that you eat before Inspire in 5, as food is not allowed into the theatre.

Is this event for girls only?

No – while our speakers are all women we think that positive female role models are important for all students!

Can students not in years 7-9 attend?

We only allow students in years 7-9 to attend this event, except in cases where an older/younger sibling would like to come along with their sister/brother.

Is there a dress code?

No – come in whatever you’re comfortable in!
