Global Connection is an event series created by alumni for alumni, to help you stay connected with UQ and fellow alumni. These casual events are a great opportunity to meet for drinks and networking. 

Alumni of all ages are welcome to these events. If you know any UQ alumni living nearby - share this event with them so we can continue to grow our global community of UQ alumni!

Your alumni host:  

Paul Gibney (MBA '91) 

I am an accountant who has worked in large construction and engineering projects in Australia and Asia (living in Thailand for 10 years). Currently I am involved as a part owner of a specialist remedial engineering business in PNG and the near Pacific region. My relationship with UQ was renewed in 2014 and since then I have served on the Melbourne Alumni Council; most recently as the Chair for the last three years. Global Connections is a perfect casual way to connect or reconnect with fellow alumni and to build networks for social and professional reasons.
