Event description
The Committee for Melbourne is delighted to invite you to our forum on the Implications of C-19 on our digital infrastructure.

About this Event

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced people to adopt new ways of working including working from home and conducting meetings through video conferencing on a regular basis. This increased usage of technology has raised questions on the suitability and availability of the infrastructure in Australia’s digital landscape. As Australia controls the spread of the virus and restrictions ease, organisations and individuals will need to consider how widespread digital working and learning can be integrated more regularly in normal practice. As the world becomes increasingly digitised, Australia must also consider how appropriate the infrastructure in place is to meet these challenges, and how to make it more inclusive and accessible. Featuring panelists Dr Ray Owen (NBN), Andrew Scott (Telstra) and Professor Julian Thomas (RMIT), join us as we discuss how COVID-19 and its resultant shutdown has affected digital usage in Melbourne, the ramifications of the pandemic, and what lessons can be learned when life and work returns to normal.

Guest speakers:

  • Andrew Scott | Head of Technology, Telstra
  • Dr Ray Owen | Chief Technology Officer, NBN Co
  • Professor Julian Thomas | ECP Director, Social Change, RMIT
  • Aaron Belbasis | Futures Technology Leader, Aurecon, and Chair of the Committee for Melbourne Competitive Internet taskforce

During the forum you will have the opportunity to ask questions via the Q&A feature.

This forum will run from 2.00pm to 3.00pm with an optional 20 minute e-networking session afterwards.

For general enquiries please contact the events team at events@melbourne.org.au.

We look forward to hosting you.

Kind Regards,

Committee for Melbourne
