Standing out from the crowd by Livvy

Stand out I’ll start with a wee bit of a brag, please don’t get all tall poppy on me… I’ve just attended a conference in Singapore and at the end was the Global Recruitment Awards Ceremony for Asia Pacific.

Now, I love a good acceptance speech, so I practiced two different derivatives in the shower that morning. However, what happened on the evening really surprised me...

Josh's SelfieWe all know Generation X (my lot), Generation Y/Millennials/Echo Generation (1980-2000, oddly unable to make up their name or mind), but what is the next generation called?

Career changeI attended a great buddy’s wedding in the Bay of Islands recently. It was everything that you’d hope for in a wedding/holiday trip: great mates, solid weather, an excellent event and a wee bit of learning. Although the learning didn’t take the form I expected.

We're proud to help educate and inspire today's youth about future options in the ICT Industry. We recently upgraded our sponsorship of ICT-Connect to Premier status; one of only three top level sponsors. We believe this clearly demonstrates our commitment to the industry.
