As a city with its own personality and place in the world, the Melbourne Global Shapers Hub is made up of a small number of dedicated individuals who come from diverse backgrounds and professions. They are united by a common goal to challenge themselves and improve the City of Melbourne. Understanding that no one view or person has all the answers, the hub selects individuals to maintain a unique mix of skills and personalities. These individuals meet socially and professionally to pursue collaborative projects, peer-led guidance, networking and development on a local, national and international scale. Knowing that time is precious, the Melbourne hub curates a mix of events and projects to add value to the lives of its members and continues to widen its reach and improve its standing within the community. Hub members are exceptional in what they do and how they approach their profession. As with all Global Shapers, they are naturally curious, passionate and committed, but the Melbourne hub defines itself by the ability to be fearless, collaborative and empathetic. They believe that honest discussion, debate and action will lead to not only improving their own lives, but in helping others realize their potential to shape a better Melbourne.
