Put away the smartphone/tablet

Don’t let your electronic device be a barrier to making connections with those around you. So while you don’t have to disconnect completely, put the phone away when you are waiting for a session to begin or taking a break – give yourself a chance to strike up conversations with other delegates around you.


Program has been updated

The most recent version of the Symposium is now available.

Final Keynote Speaker Announcement

The Symposium Committee is excited to announce our guest keynote speaker is Shane Gould.

An advocate of lifelong learning, Shane completed a Masters of Environmental Management at University of Tasmania in 2010. Her thesis was on the Social uses of Public outdoor swimming pools. Not content with that, she completed a photomedia Masters of Contemporary Art (June 2012) at the UTAS Academy of Arts Launceston. Shane Gould MBE, takes her place in Australia’s sporting heritage as one of the worlds greatest female swimmers. She swam at the Munich 1972 Olympics, and is still the only woman ever to win 5 individual medals. Shane is on the board of directors of the Devil Island Project (part of Save the Devil program) and Against Malaria Foundation. She is ambassador for Bluearth, promoting physical activity for children.

We look forward to welcoming all our keynote speakers to the Symposium in September.
