The Future of Telecommunications in the Bush & Beyond
Thursday, 26th May 2022
Telecommunications has come a very long way since Sir Charles Todd completed the Overland Telegraph from Adelaide to Darwin and connected Australia to the Empire in 1872.
The last 20 years have seen great changes, not the least of which has been the building of the nbn, but will probably be dwarfed by the changes still to come.
Gavin Williams has a BSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of Melbourne and an MBA from Macquarie Graduate School of Management.
Following an engineering cadetship and early career in Telecom Australia, he spent 19 years in Optus before joining the nbn in 2014.
In this special year we celebrate 150 years since the completion of the Overland Telegraph in 1872 by Sir Charles Todd.
David Piltz from Heritage Telecommunications (HTL) and Telstra, will give us a short talk on the history and hardships of that endeavour before introducing Gavin.
Join TelSoc, Gavin and David for luncheon on Thursday 26th May 2022 at the Angliss Restaurant, 550 Lt Lonsdale Street, Melbourne.
The event commences with professional networking from 11.45am, and then a sit-down lunch with drinks and dessert served from 12:15pm.
The formalities will commence from 12:30pm and finish at about 1:40pm.
