Expanding our skills and knowledge

It has been a busy few months on the professional development front, with DIT staff traversing the country and beyond to attend conferences and training sessions.

In September staff headed to Sydney for the Women in Tech conference, Brisbane for the CAUDIT Software Licensing and Asset Management conference and Perth for the CAUDIT P3M forum.

October was our busiest month yet with the University IT Service Strategy and Challenges conference in Melbourne, Squiz Summit, Web Directions Culture and SCRUM Australia conferences in Sydney and the Gartner Symposium ITEXPO on the Gold Coast.

Project Managers, Business Analysts, CRM and Web Office staff participated in Feature and User Story Training in Wagga Wagga. And staff from the Service Desk, Applications, Networks and the Project Managers team attended 3 day ITIL Foundations training on Albury campus, with the added pressure of an exam at the end. Happily everybody passed and received their certification – well done!

Other training DIT staff attended throughout October included LGBTIQ+ Ally Inclusion training on Albury Campus, Microsoft PowerShell training in Sydney and a Women in Leadership workshop in Sydney.

In early November Sam Barnes and Ben Tilson from the Integration team headed to Las Vegas for the Boomi World conference, sharing lots of photos and updates throughout the conference on our DIT Staff Yammer group.
