Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said the Youth Symposium is ideal for students, recent graduates and those uncertain of what career paths to take. 

“Over the next five to ten years there will be big technological changes and advances as we enter into what is being called the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” Mayor Byrne said.

“Technology is evolving and changing at an exponential rate and is causing disruption to almost every industry.

“We want to give our younger residents the best possible chance to succeed and provide them with first-hand knowledge of the technological, industrial and employment changes that are coming our way,” Mayor Byrne added.
