Those keen to meet fellow alumni and members from other Australian Universities are strongly encouraged to attend.

It promises to be an entertaining and fun night.

The supply chain from IT manufacturers to end-users involves key intermediaries such as distributors, system integrators, IT departments, procurement managers etc.  With increasing user sophistication and the accessibility of on-line and cloud services, the roles of these intermediaries undergo continuing change.

After his first career in mechanical engineering, Robert moved into IT during the pioneering years of computerisation in the civil service of Singapore.

Since then he has been leading business development in various local and regional IT companies.
