Speech at GovHack 2015 Red Carpet Awards


I had the pleasure of representing the Australian Government at the GovHack 2015 Red Carpet Awards. I spoke about the importance of collaborative innovation to the future of work, and congratulated this year’s winners for the range of extraordinary solutions they produced.

Supported by both the Federal Government and the private sector, GovHack encourages young Australians to work collaboratively to find innovative uses for open Government data.

Each year, the Government makes available a variety of data sets to competitors, who aim to utilise them to find inventive solutions to any number of problems faced by modern society. The work of the 2015 competitors was impressive indeed.
