AIT graduation address

It was a great honour to address the graduating class of the Academy of Information Technology (ait.edu.au) on Friday night.

This cohort of graduates included recipients of: Bachelor of Information Technology (mobile app development), Bachelor of Interactive Media, Degree of Digital Media Technologies and Diploma of Software Development.

This diversity of disciplines covers the extensive range of projects which I have been fortunate to be involved over my career(s). As I noted, current graduate can fully expect to have three careers over their working life, and of those roles, some may not yet even exist!

After 36 years in film, television and digital media, the attributes I emphasised were professionalism, passion and persistence.

Serendipitously, the AIT Sydney campus in Ultimo is located in the same building at which I worked as Production Manager for television studio and corporate video company Broadcom, in 1986.

This connection allowed me to speak of the consistently exponential rate of change over the last three decades, and even earlier, when I was programming a mainframe computer with punch-cards!

I spoke of the joy of life-long learning, the magnifying effect of creative collaboration and the luck which seems to endow people who work hard.

With practical suggestions, personal anecdotes, and memorable quotations, my intention was to inspire and encourage graduates to approach their chosen disciplines with rationalism and rigour.

During the post-graduation celebrations, it was a pleasure to meet so many of academics and students, and take a tour of what was once my office!

Foodbank has experienced unprecedented growth .. there is no doubt that the new Foodbank website, designed, built and maintained pro bono by Digital Tsunami, has been the principle tool in lifting Foodbank's profile. It is because our website is so engaging, that we have captured these donations. Foodbank just wouldn't be where we are today without Digital Tsunami.

For providing a reliable, fast, and well maintained hosting service for business websites, I recommend Andrew and his company Digital Tsunami. The technical support given has been above and beyond, their hosting the fastest I have experienced, and is very well maintained with no issues.

Andrew certainly bends over backwards for his new and current clients, and I can tell he genuinely cares about providing nothing short of an outstanding service.
