Electrical engineer ready to lead the way after conference
ROCKHAMPTON'S Mattison Rose might already be an electrical engineer, but yesterday he was chasing some tips on how to spark up his leadership skills.
The CQUniversity student was one of about 90 students from all over Australia who had gathered for the annual Student Leadership Conference at the university's North Rockhampton campus.
"The leadership conference for me is to get an idea of how to better my skills as a leader, as well as get some insight from some of the key speakers," Mattison said.
"I am glad (CQUniversity) run this sort of thing, it has been really good to get students involved."
Mattison, who had recently completed his degree and was looking forward to his new job in the mining industry, said he was particularly excited to hear from fellow CQU student Jessica Kahl.
The civil engineering student, Dream Big project originator and Big Idea team winner was one of four key speakers at the conference.
Mattison said as a fellow engineer, he was interested to hear her perspective.
While he had only sat in on the introduction when he spoke to The Morning Bulletin yesterday, Mattison was looking forward to the rest of the conference.
