BalPowar1IE Associate Professor Balvinder Singh Powar will be holding a series of workshops in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney to discuss his experience in the Innovative & Disruptive Commercial Space sector through his company BOOSTER Space Industries, the entrepreneurial challenge of setting up a business in an unproven & pioneering industry and how soft skills are fundamental to success.

At the heart of these sessions will be Innovation as an Attitude for Success at both a personal and company level by adopting creative approaches and using the power of soft skills as a value creating differentiator in an ever competitive and uniform world.

Balvinder will touch on aspects of his core specialist areas to create an active, fun, lively and useful session where people can openly debate various topics.

The classes will focus on innovation, entrepreneurship, leadership/soft skills and how we can inspire each other to take responsibility and dream BIG.
