PM1.jpg Meeting the Prime Minister?

On 26th October, members of the Heulab team in Australia were honored to be present at a special presentation by the prime minister of Australia - Mr. Kevin Rudd. The Prime Minister spoke to a small audience about his plans for the Education Revolution and many other topics relevant to business and Australia's interests. After the presentation, there was time to ask the Prime Minister questions and enjoy drinks with him in a casual setting.

It was indeed an honor to listen to and meet the Prime Minister. I particularly enjoyed hearing about his plans for the Education Revolution and explanation of how this goal fits into the overall plan of how he proposes to bring Australia to the forefront of technologically advanced nations. As the event was held at a school with a limited number of attendees, the whole evening had a very relaxed and informal feel. It was particularly nice to be able to chat to the PM over drinks after his speech.

During his speech, the PM mentioned the Singapore education system twice, showing his interest in educational trends in the pacific region and acknowledging the high standards of education in our neighboring nations.
