Fearless Conversations cover defence

The Defence sector will be in the spotlight for the second Fearless Conversation, as industry experts discuss future-proofing South Australia’s defence sector to cement the state’s future as an industry leader.

Join Professor Giselle Rampersad from the College of Science and Engineering, along with Nova Systems CEO Jim McDowell, BAE Systems Maritime Australia Managing Director Craig Lockhart and Richard Price, CE Defence SA, as they discuss the skills shortages in the space, and the rise of China in the sector. The session will be facilitated by Paul Starick, Editor at Large, The Advertiser.

Visit the Flinders University websiteThe Advertiser homepage or Facebook page at 10.30am on Wednesday 1 September to be part of this Fearless Conversation.

Professor Rampersad says it’s humbling to be a part of these conversations, and she hopes her voice, along with those on the panel, will drive change and opportunity for the future.

“Fearless Conversations is fantastic opportunity to have the important conversations that matter to address the key challenges and opportunities to drive the future. I am humbled by opportunity to add my voice to these vital debates,” says Professor Rampersad.

“I’m very excited about the opportunities that the shipbuilding programs bring to Australia. I’m looking forward to talk about what it means for the future for our young people.

“Industry collaboration is also at the heart of what we do at Flinders so it is wonderful to have this conversation together with industry.”
