Several 2017 IT Graduates took the opportunity to attend the recent BiiG Conference held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
They were very impressed with the charismatic key note speaker, Dr Jason Fox, a pioneer and expert in motivation design, who shared his philosophies to evoke quality thinking, better conversations and braver, wiser decision making.
Day two opened with the founders of OrangeSky laundry, Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchet. These humble and inspirational lads shared their journey from idea to conception, to provide free clothes washing facilities to the homeless. Back in 2014, the 20 year old best mates, found a way to treat others the way they want to be treated by restoring respect, hope and positive re-connection of friends to the community. Run by dedicated volunteers, the successful OrangeSky washing and shower vans are now Australia-wide.
The graduates expressed that the conference provided a valuable networking opportunity, and the high-calibre of guest speakers and breakout sessions, exceptional!
