Sydney Trains Innovation Conversations

The Sydney Trains Innovation team have held many excellent events throughout the year that perhaps you have already had the privilege of attending. After reading this article, you will be vying for a ticket to the next event (which tend to fill up super-fast so get in quick!).

The most recent session held by the ST Innovation team was on Thursday 8 November 2018 at the Art House Hotel and had over 300 attendees with the theme being “Build your influence. Give your ideas traction.”

This session delved into learning how to build stronger relationships and how to leverage the collective potential and realise innovations. You see, the innovation team is so inspiring because they don’t simply focus on innovation for their area, but they are all about empowering and equipping others to be innovative in their thinking and practices too. The event featured keynote speakers from the Transport Cluster, who spoke about innovation in their spaces and shared their life experiences around how they have helped push the limits for public transport infrastructure and realised benefits for our customers.

The night ended with an engaging presentation by Anthony “The Mind Reader” Laye from Australia’s Got Talent. Anthony focused on ways for attendees to become more productive and tips on how to influence decision makers to make what you say count. He also encouraged attendees to empower themselves with the right people skills so that their ideas can break through barriers and change the way the cluster conducts business.

It was a great night, enjoyed by all.

Consider volunteering!

The previous Sydney Trains Innovation team event had P!nk’s drummer, Mark Schulman, as a guest. One of our very own VET Cadets volunteered on the night and won a ticket to the Sydney Innov8ers conference. Just another reason to either volunteer or attend the ST Innovation events/workshops! Keep an eye out.
