It was a ‘Big Day In’ Newcastle


The University of Newcastle, was the venue for a NSW regional ‘Big Day In’ event held last Thursday, April 30, 2015. About 420 students from the Hunter Valley region gathered in the university’s Great Hall to hear from a wide range of industry representatives encouraging them to consider a future career in ICT.

It was terrific to share the stage with Priyanka Chitnis, like we did early in the year at the UTS event. She is soon to graduate from the University of New South Wales and, as an Adobe Rep, has been an inspiration to many students encouraging them to think outside the square and be creative in all they do.

It was also lovely to work again with Heidi Fisher for XCERIO (formally known at IC Central) who was promoting certification options for students in Adobe software.

Special thanks to the Australian Computer Society Foundation and Digital Careers for running the ‘Big Day In’ events throughout the country. I’m looking forward to Perth next week.
