We are excited to tell you about our Principal Partners for TEDxSydney 2015.
At the University of Sydney, we’ve been a leader in ideas for more than 160 years. We generate, cultivate and nurture them for the benefit of Australia and the world. It’s what we’re all about. Making lives better by equipping our people with leadership qualities so their ideas can make a difference to all of our communities at every level.
As a leader in tertiary education, we have always been open to new ideas. We were one of the first universities in the world to admit students solely on academic merit, and to open our doors to women on the same basis as men. In creating the first university in Australia, our founders recognised the power of education – and new ideas – to change society. We hold that belief just as strongly today.
Our partnership with TEDxSydney and TEDxYouth@Sydney is a perfect fit as we share a passion for bringing together a diversity of ideas and fresh perspectives to tackle some of the world’s greatest challenges.
At St.George, we are passionate about supporting, sharing and growing ideas in Australia. We’re committed to helping our customers, our employees and our communities to start something - supporting ideas and helping to turn them into reality.
St.George has been a pioneer in the adoption and use of new technologies. We were the first bank to introduce internet banking in Australia, and second in the world. We were also the first bank to market with support for wearables and fingerprint technology for mobile banking. We have always looked to develop new ways of making banking easier. We are digital pioneers, because we believe in thinking differently. We believe the best ideas come from sharing and that’s why TEDxSydney is the perfect platform for us to bring together and generate ideas worth spreading.
