The 2018 Debate
Last year’s inaugural debate was a huge success and sold out with over 180 guests in attendance at PwC. Melbourne entrepreneur, Kee Wong, who also sits on the boards of CarSales, Committee for Melbourne and Victoria University, won the debate.
Knowledgeable in all things engineering, IT and business, Kee argued the biggest trend coming our way is “the future of education”. He believes that Australia's Higher Education Industry – which is the third largest export revenue for Australia and the highest export revenue for the State state of Victoria – is under threat to being disrupted. What’s interesting is his prediction is that it the disruption won’t be by other groups of universities, but by online platform players like Amazon et al.
