Former Tasmanian Premier David Bartlett returns to the Sunshine Coast on Wed 25 July to discuss the National Broadband Network’s impact on the local business community.

Mr Bartlett will give Sunshine Coast Businesses insights into digital futures and the implications of high speed broadband at the Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce’s July Networking event, following his outstanding presentation at the Sunshine Coast Business Expo in May.

Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce President Mr Ross Hepworth said the former Premier would outline 12 key areas to consider in a whole-of-region digital futures strategy at the networking dinner.

“Mr Bartlett has had an extensive career in the information technology and telecommunications sector and will bring his unique perspective to discussions about broadband in relation to the region’s future,” he said.

“With the Sunshine Coast scheduled for connection to the National Broadband Network (NBN) from 2014, it’s a fantastic opportunity to hear first-hand from the man who switched on the first non-Telstra owned optic fibre backbone in Tasmania and the first NBN location in Australia.”

Mr Bartlett was a key driver in Tasmania’s early recognition of the importance of high-speed broadband and has since worked with regional economies and communities across Australia to prepare strategies for maximising economic and social renewal underpinned by broadband.

He was keynote speaker at the opening breakfast of the Sunshine Coast Business Expo which provided the catalyst for his return visit in July.

MC for the evening will be Craig Allington, former Olympian and local businessman.  David Bartlett is brought to us by RDA Sunshine Coast and the event is proudly sponsored by Bendigo Bank.

The Networking Dinner with David Bartlett will be held at 5.30pm on Wednesday 25 July at the Maroochydore Surf Club. Tickets must be pre-purchased. Members and Guests $50 are available and includes a two course meal and complimentary drink on arrival.
