Event description

Description

Are you a junior commander who wants to get involved in intellectual conversation about our profession of arms? Then we want you!

DEF[X] AUS is a two-day forum developed to enhance the intellectual and innovation culture of junior commanders. This forum aims to:

  • Network the ‘smart and innovative minds’ from within our military, regardless of rank, trade or specialty.
  • Foster intellectual capability, adaptive action and military professionalism from the ground-up.

DEF[X] AUS will see two days of workshops, presentations, and networking events. Some of the topics include:

  • The Future Fight
  • Why Innovate? Learning and adaptation during war
  • Junior leader stories of success and failure in innovation
  • As well as a series of workshops that will include topics such as amphibiosity, professional development, logistics and the close fight.

Day two of DEF[X] Aus will also see a number of junior commanders pitch their ideas to the DEF[X] AUS board. To find more information – see here.


FAQs

Who can attend?

There are four categories of people who can attend:

Junior Participants. DEF[X] Aus is targeting CPL – MAJs to come along as ‘Junior Participants’. You don’t need to have an idea to pitch at the DEF[X], you can just come along and listen. Junior leaders from all services and the department are also welcome to attend. So if you are a MAJ or below, Sign up as a Junior Participant.

Senior Participants. A number of Senior Participant positions are also available (LTCOL and above). Please register your interest by filling out the registration form. Please note that if we hit seating capacity then DEF[X] tickets will be prioritised to Junior Participants.

Idea Pitchers and Sponsors. If you are pitching an idea at the DEF[X] and have been formally assigned your Idea Sponsor, then you know who you are. We just need all Idea Sponsors and Pitchers to register IOT help with our administrative tracking.
