More than 50 veski connection members, comprising of world-leading scientists, researchers and business leaders including veski innovation fellows and veski board directors, came together to celebrate the first gathering of this exclusive and prestigious group on Monday, 1 December 2014 at Byblos on the World Trade Centre Wharf.

Guests, each invited by veski to join the group, were welcomed by veski chief executive officer Ms Julia L Page, who presented the veski 10 year anniversary video which highlighted the exceptional achievements throughtout veski's first decade.

Guest speaker Professor Andrew Holmes AM, President of the Australian Academy of Science, who was the inaugural veski innovation fellow and a recently-retired veski board director, shared his insights on achieving an international career powered by connections, and spoke of the important networking and connection opportunities veski enables.

His speech covered work with collaborators in Australia, the UK and the US, and included personal stories about connections he and his wife made while on family holidays, and the importance of seizing opportunities.

Two connection members who provided ideas for future events, were selected as the recipients of two, one hour, one to one, coaching sessions with insium pty ltd to help identify and achieve professional development goals.

Following formalities and Professor Andrew Holmes AM’s enlightening and inspiring speech, veski connection attendees enjoyed an evening of networking with fellow members.

Among the highlights of the evening was the opportunity for many Victoria Fellows to share stories from their overseas study missions from which many had recently returned.
