A word from the CEO – May 2023

This month is a busy one for the VicWater team with two major events in the calendar.

On 22 May is the Intelligent Water Networks (IWN) Annual Members Conference, a free event for all staff of IWN member organisations. IWN is all about helping water corporations in Victoria and Tasmania trial and adopt transformative new technologies. This year’s conference theme is ‘The Power of Positive Disruption’ and the program features some great speakers and interactive sessions which will no doubt offer interesting and potentially challenging perspectives on how the industry can drive innovation and build capacity for change.

On 25 May is The People Summit with a focus on safety, culture and leadership. People are the water sector’s most important asset and without them the Victorian water sector would be unable to deliver world class services to enhance the liveability of our communities. This event is aimed at board directors and executives and the program includes keynote speaker Julia Banks and sessions on safety and wellbeing, diversity and inclusion, employee value propositions and leaders of the future. We are very pleased to have the support of our event sponsors Pitcher Partners, Vision Super, Davidson, Salesforce and TCV.

Registrations for both these events are still open (see below) and we hope that you are able to take advantage of these opportunities to connect, share and learn from industry peers and other experts.
