Big Day In – Canberra 2016

It was delightful to meet with about 300 students in our Nation’s capital today at the 2016 Canberra Big Day In at the University of Canberra.



Designed by students for students, The BiG Day In is a series of IT careers events throughout Australia, sponsored by Adobe.


Throughout this year, there have been eight events so far with two more to come. By the end of this year a total of 161 speakers, 165 exhibitors & 69 organisations will have been involved in delivering events nationally involving over 6,500 students exploring careers in technology.

It was great to hear from Professor Lawrence Prachett, Dean of Faculty of Business, Government & Law at the University of Canberra, welcome the students to his university.


Mrs Meegan Fitzharris, ACT Minister for Higher Education, Research & Training also spoke to the students and encouraged them to consider ICT as a career and studying at one of the great universities in ACT.
