September 2018 Main Meeting featuring Vodafone

Our special guest this month is Megan Retka-Tidd, Head of The Vodafone Foundation.

As Meg will explain, "everyone has the power to do good".

For Meg, experience across the digital media, education, community and corporate sectors have given her the skills to innovate, collaborate, and create measurable, sustainable impact on issues that matter.

The Vodafone Foundation exists to make Australia healthier through technology. It's Meg's job to make that vision come to fruition, with support from the Foundation board, the business, and our strategic partnerships.

We are going to learn about two Vodafone Foundation initiatives, which are as follows:

DreamLab: By allowing the use of their smartphone on this award-winning app, users help speed up cancer research at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research. The end-goal of this research supported by DreamLab is to find safer and more effective treatments for cancer.

Hello Sunday Morning: we are supporting Hello Sunday Morning to help change Australia's relationship with alcohol.

Gerard Mansour is Vodafone's Head of Consumer Media Relations, and he will also present a slide that briefly covers Vodafone's new unlimited mobile phone and data plans and Vodafone NBN offerings, but that won't be the main feature of the presentation, and Gerard is doing it because I've suggested it's simply worth letting us know what Vodafone is doing in this regard.

There will also be two Genome Power Pack mobile phone batteries, valued at $49 each to be won in the raffle on the night, as well as the lucky door prize, Q&A, interesting tech news and more.

So, see you on Tuesday night!

Cheers

Alex.
