The NSW Division held its first event of the year with the networking event, Now and Then: Growing the future from the seeds of the past.
The event was opened by Chris Russell AM who recently received recognition as a member of the Order of Australia. The lucky attendees were treated to the fascinating story of AIA Fellow Peter McMaugh’s work in developing the drop in cricket pitch, liaising with the likes of Kerry Packer and Richie Benaud, alongside some great career and networking tips. Guy Coleman provided an interesting overview of drones, technology and how youth have changed their perspective on careers, discussing the “passionate impatience” of millennials. The event was made particularly special with a number of Kenyan and Tanzanian students, lecturers and researchers attending. Many international connections were made, old connections fostered and experiences shared.
