I recently attended the Strategic Regional Leadership for Innovation Conference in Port Macquarie. The conference attracted more than 300 delegates, was opened by North Coast TAFE’s institute director, Elizabeth McGregor and featured many speakers, including the Hon Simon Crean MP, the Hon Andrew Stoner, MP, Rob Oakeshott MP and many more, including the engaging and “17th most important person in London”, Dr Tim Williams, Publicani.
The conference attracted considerable media attention and was pivotal in reshaping thinking about regional leadership across Australia with a big focus on the NBN (National Broadband Network) and the opportunities and services it will bring to the mid-north coast. North Coast TAFE had a great stand demonstrating how we are currently using new technologies in education. The stand was manned by myself (a.k.a. Gadget Girl). North Coast TAFE had many presentations throughout the conference, but I thought I’d share the prezi that I developed because I just heart prezi.
