Proud to be recognised up there on the big screen as one of the Global Ambassadors for Business Events Sydney at the Annual Ambassadors Dinner at the International Conventional Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) on 30 November 2018. I am proud of the fact that I was one of the inaugural ten Ambassadors appointed to the role. I had the pleasure of working closely for many years prior from 2001, with the team led by Jon Hutchison, who was then, the CEO of the Business Events Sydney. I was invested at a ceremony presented by the then Minister for Tourism, the Honorable Jodi Mckay in September 2009, immediately after the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine (WFUMB 2009) world congress was successfully completed over five days. The WFUMB 2009 world congress, attracted over 2400 delegates from over 70 countries, and with the largest ever delegation from Asia ( about 700 doctors and healthcare professionals came from Asian countries). The event was cited as the “Olympics of Ultrasound” and was it a success? Yes, indeed! Many stories to share about this event, which are increasingly relevant in this era of Australia in the Asian Century. Now is also the era of Australian Business Events in the Asian Century!
