I attended the annual CGU Benchmark Awards on Thursday 1 Sep 16 in Sydney (Cleanaway was a proud winner!), and the keynote speaker was Technology Futurist, Shara Evans. Shara introduced herself to our little group before the event and within few minutes, we were all looking forward to hearing her speak; Shara is engaging and knowledgeable, and the remarkable technological insights she provided were captivating. I’m quite sure that most, if not all, people present left the awards ceremony with minds blown! Shara has been ahead of the curve her entire working life, and in the sci-fi movie field of technology, that is something in itself. We were all speaking to everyone we came across for the next 2 days about her keynote address. Commendable.
