More than 120 delegates from the local business community got a taste of the opportunities in a high-speed broadband world from Kate Cornick (NBN Co – General Manager (Education & Health) on 25 June.
The event, co-hosted by ICT Geelong and the Australian Information Industry Association, explored opportunities and expected trends in e-health and e-education in the context of both the NBN implementation as well as a regional economy in transition. With the prospect of the NBN being ‘switched on’ mid-2014 the event was the first of many that will educate the local business community on best practice in the use of high speed broadband.
