M&T Resources is proud to sponsor the Business Analysts Professional Day (BAPD) that was held at the RACV Club in Melbourne recently. Peter Riseley, Team Manager in our Melbourne team reports.
The Business Analysts Professional Day is a one-day special event that fits in insights, development and networking opportunities targeted to business analysts (BAs). As a recruitment partner helping some of Australia’s most in-demand employers find the best BAs, we’re proud to be a part of this event as a sponsor and exhibitor.
Hosted by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) – the leading international, professional association for business analysts and the business analysis profession – the event turned out to be highly successful as more than 260 Business Analysts and technology professionals across all areas and seniority turned up to hear from the likes of:
- Nigel Dalton, CIO of REA Group – “Ultimate Business Analysis”
- Haydn Thomas , Director & Practice Lead of Mindavation – “Agile BA”
- Tim Coventry , CEO at Business Analysts and IIBA® Australia Past President – “Business Case Development”
- Lorraine Pestell , Strategy & Performance Manager, Information Services at State Trustees – “BA Bringing Strategy to Life”
Besides being there to offer attendees insights into the current Business Analysts and general technology job market, Jemma Dougall (Team Manager) and I also had the opportunity to attend some of the sessions throughout the day.
A highlight was hearing Nigel Dalton (CIO of REA Group) share his thoughts on the future of technology, disruptions in the market and impending changes. Based on talking to some of the attendees, there was highly positive feedback on his presentation.
Attendees also thought that the various workshops throughout the day challenged their thinking and provided valuable continuous improvement ideas for the BA community.
With the BA Professional Day proving to be a valuable event to Business Analysts, we look forward to attending again next year!
