Com­mu­nity should be ap­plauded for Tech Fest ini­tia­tive

South Western Times - - Point Of View -

The Col­lie com­mu­nity should be recog­nised and con­grat­u­lated for their for­ward-think­ing ap­proach in help­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of en­trepreneurs reach their full po­ten­tial at the in­au­gu­ral Art and Tech Fest.

By tak­ing the time to hear the needs of emerg­ing lead­ers, and more im­por­tantly putting those ideas into ac­tion, they are in­vest­ing in their youth and lead­ing by ex­am­ple.

The 18 months of hard work to get the fes­ti­val off the ground will en­sure young en­trepreneurs hit the ground run­ning as they pur­sue ca­reer and busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The les­son to take from this event is the recog­ni­tion that young peo­ple play “a big part of our fu­ture”, Oper­a­tion Next Gen man­ager Kerry An­der­son said, and it is im­por­tant to steer them on the right path.

The in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als who have agreed to im­part their wis­dom to emerg­ing cre­atives should also be com­mended for ded­i­cat­ing their time to give par­tic­i­pants a head start.

We hope the com­mu­nity will show its sup­port of this fan­tas­tic ini­tia­tive to en­sure the bet­ter­ment of our as­pir­ing cre­ative en­trepreneurs in the years to come.

Re­spected Bun­bury artist An­drew Frazer will share his own ex­pe­ri­ences in the art and busi­ness work­shop at Col­lie’s Art and Tech Fest in Novem­ber.
