Thursday night 7.8.14 was the Annual WIC Canberra debate! I was invited to lead the "fad" team on the panel along with a group of VIPs. On my awesome team was the Gavin McCairns (Dept of Immigration and Border Protection) and Megan James (Commercial Director, Australian Data Centres). Gavin took the role of James Bond with all of his wonderful wearable techs (of course they are fad though!) and Ms Moneypenny gave her all for the team!
On the other team we had Peter Lambert (CIO Defence Science and Technology Organisation - pic below), Roze Frost (CIO, Department of Finance) and Brendan Smyth (MLA ACT). Peter started the debate by disguising himself as Dame Edna in a very entertaining way :)
A great crowd of 300! A record for WIC! We had the 3rd most trending hashtag...some not related were stealing it! A huge shout out to Kate Muir (President) and to Marie Johnson (VP) for the awesome job putting all this together with your fab sub-committee.
It was a great night catching up with old friends (Helen you are a superhero!) and also making new friends :)
A great night all round, looking forward to next year! :)
