TEDxDubbo - Ben Bardon - The Creation of The Flannery Centre Strategy

Ben Bardon is CEO of Central West Group Apprentices, a group training company based in Bathurst. Ben has worked in the Community Training sector since 1990 and has held a number of representative positions including Board membership of the Adult Literacy and Numeracy Council, and National Employment Services Association. In 2006 Ben conducted a research project for The Commonwealth Department of Education, Science and Training into the role the not-for-profit training sector could play in the national reform agenda. Since then he has concentrated on developing international business opportunities in the UK and Timor Leste. These involve exporting the Group Apprenticeship Program through joint venture arrangements. TEDxDubbo focused attention on what we call FACETS -- Food, Agriculture, Climate, Energy, Topsoil and Sustainability. These FACETS are actually potent ideas shared by everyday people with an interest in these disciplines. In many of these topics there is an awareness campaign; the aim of bringing our community together united against catastrophic failures in our food-chain, environment and health. It is worth mentioning that we are also indebted to our natural systems for our economic wealth. Failures in Food, Agriculture, Climate, Energy, Topsoil and Sustainability are not just a local issue -- they are a global concern. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
