2021 TEDxQUT Team

Montana White | Co-Curator and Speaker Relations

Montana has been working with QUT for just under six years, with a focus on event coordination and management. She is a firm believer in sharing knowledge and exploring the world beyond academia as a means of education, making her a perfect fit for the TEDxQUT team. Her ethos is situated around developing a curiosity about the world, appreciating diversity and perspective, and having the ability to contribute to transformative and insightful conversations. Montana is passionate about mental health awareness, Deaf awareness, and combatting period poverty in Australia. When not busy with work or study she enjoys studying classical piano or treating herself to cheese board with gin and tonic in hand.


Claudia Steiner | Co-Curator and Venue Management

Since relocating to Brisbane in 2018, Claudia has been working with QUT, creating engaging events for students, staff and the wider community. Traveling from a young age instilled a love for learning about different cultures, meeting new people and appreciation of the diverse world we live in. This lead to studies in anthropology and international relations, extensive travels across the globe and a career in the education sector. Inspired by Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point, Claudia believes we all have the ability to make a big difference and create positive change. Claudia is passionate about creating opportunities for students to gain a greater understanding of the world, creating “connectors”, breaking down barriers and bringing people from all social, cultural, professional and economic circles together. “In a world where we can be anything, be kind”.
