Institute members were the first to see Perth’s amazing new Innovation Hub- Spacecubed, and meet its creator, Brodie McCulloch, Managing Director, Social innovation in Western Australia (SiiWA).

As the first dedicated Young Professional event for 2012, Brodie provided a roaming tour through Spacecubed followed by a presentation at the Council House Gardens, finishing off with surprise drinks at Helvetica.
