Young business people program

Cornwalls understands the essential role that relationships hold for businesses, and recognises the importance of networking for professional careers.

The YBP initiative was established in 2001 and runs out of the Melbourne Office. The purpose of this program is to encourage networking for the young professionals both at Cornwalls and in the wider professional community. Members are encouraged to attend events and invite people from their networks to join them.

Young Business People

Our YBP program is designed to assist and encourage our young lawyers – and our clients’ young business people – to build their professional networks in a relaxed environment. The program also helps us to gain a better understanding of our clients and their needs, which allows us to enhance their success.

YBP hosts various functions throughout the year. Our young lawyers and clients come together to develop lasting relationships and share knowledge, having fun in the process. These relationships provide important benefits as their careers progress.

“I have met so many like-minded professionals, small business owners and entrepreneurs through Cornwalls’ Young Business People network. These networks have supported me throughout my career and I look forward to seeing the people I have met become future leaders of the business community.”

Adrian Lee, Chairperson
