Dine with David Bartlett
David was the Premier of the Australian state of Tasmania from 2008 until 2011. During his parliamentary career he also held the positions of Minister for Innovation, Science and Technology, Minister for Education and Skills, Minister for Planning and Workplace Relations, Attorney General and Member for Denison. Prior to entering Parliament, David had an extensive career in the information technology and telecommunications sector. As Premier he switched on the first non-Telstra owned optic fibre backbone in Tasmania and he championed his home state as the first National Broadband Network location. Throughout his political career David advocated strong economic growth through innovation, public
education, food production, broadband, and renewable energy. David brings a unique perspective to discussions about the successes and challenges of public life, and is passionate about sharing the Tasmanian experience with other regional economies. Since leaving the Parliament, David has been working with regional economies and communities across Australia to prepare strategies for maximising economic and social renewal underpinned by broadband. David has recently accepted a part-time position advising the University of Tasmania on strategies to maximise the research potential of broadband in Tasmania. He has also recently accepted a number of non-executive director positions.
