About our Graduate Enterprise Officer

Alexander Mcleod

I have entrepreneurial, higher education and corporate experience.

As an entrepreneur, I have been active in the secondary school entrepreneurship education and university innovation space. I have developed and implemented extra-curricular and digital initiatives that advocate entrepreneurship, provide enterprise education and foster entrepreneurial activity among youth.

I am currently working in higher education where I offer guidance and support to students and graduates who want to launch their own ventures.

My time spent in corporate saw me manage operations and strategy projects for clients in the education, transport, tourism and commercial fishing industries.

I have experience in youth entrepreneurship, startup support and business modelling.

I have reported to, worked alongside and managed people across all levels of various state and private sector organisations
