MBT Community events

Each year there are a range of MBT community events which take place involving staff, students, alumni and industry.

MBT Community Golf Day 2016

Each year the MBT community raise funds for a community Golf Day held at the prestigious NSW Golf Club. This year's, held on the 15th of November, was the 5th annual occurrence of the event which was initiated by the MBT Board. 86 members of the MBT community from over 60 organisations swung their clubs on the day.

A big thank you to this year's major sponsors: NEC, GitHub, Capital Talent Consulting, 2DSearch, Bearena, West UC, TCS and Elabor8 
A few words from Program Director, Ken Dovey: The 5th MBT Golf Day, held at the NSW Golf Club was, like its forerunners, a great success. Huge congratulations to Rob Hanimyan, Stuart Penny and Phil Redding (and their team of helpers) for creating this wonderful experience for all who attended the event. As always, the organisation of the event was flawless, and the spirited communication over lunch, after playing the 18 holes of golf, among the people who attended, indicated that everyone had enjoyed the golf and was thoroughly enjoying the day in general.

Master of Business and Technology Innovation Keynote & Panel

On the 22nd of November 2016 the MBT community hosted a Jens Pistorius inspired Innovation Event at the UTS Aerial Function Centre. The keynote speaker for the night was NSW Minister for Innovation Victor Dominello who gave a presentation on what he is currently doing to facilitate innovation in NSW government. He managed the Q&A session with conviction, honesty and of course a sense of humour. Over 140 members of the Master of Business and Technology community attended the evening.

Dave Snowden Talk

On the 18th April 2016, the MBT community hosted an event at which the globally-renowned academic and theorist, Dave Snowden, gave an outstanding presentation on Decision-Making in Complex Environments. The event allowed the MBT community to experience a thought-provoking and challenging presentation that resulted in rich discussion at the social event that followed the presentation. This stimulating intellectual input, followed by informed community dialogue, represented academic/industry engagement at its best. The event was organised by two members of the MBT community (one current student and one alumnus), who also organised the sponsorship by Wired Consulting.
