IdeasFest Top End Women 2017

A fabulous inaugural IdeasFest TopEnd Women on Friday 27/10/2017 was hosted by Luke Gosling OAM MP at Monsoons, organised by by Deb Turner ThinkSmart NT,  Jude Ellen Rust490 and Jessica Christie ELB . It was a first IdeasFest for 45 invited women to see what people thought, and also a pilot for new ways of using technology to gather people’s feedback and ideas. It succeeded spectacularly!

Jude and Jess combined thier expertise to create a well-designed fast fun Q&A session using the big screen electroboard interactivity using mobile phones to “throw” answers to the board. Instant results were displayed in voting, rating scores, graphs and tag clouds and in phrases expressing ideas and wish lists for immediate discussion. Here are the SERIOUS questions we covered in 30 minutes –

  1. What do you cherish most about living in the Top End?
  2. What can make the Top End a better place for women to live?
  3. And the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility is $5 billion worth of loans for infrastructure to develop the North. What is your wish list for infrastructure spend ?
