Network, Network, Network!

Many technical communicators work independently of their peers. It is a great experience to be in the same room as a large group of your own ilk. People who share the same problems and have similar experiences, and people who you can both empathise and celebrate with! Networking has always been a priority at AODC, and in 2010, there were opportunities galore!

MadCap Welcome Reception

Wednesday 12th May, 4.45pm - 5.45pm

Drinks after the first day was an ideal way to meet colleagues and relax after a hard day of thought-provoking sessions. The Welcome Reception was free for all AODC delegates and speakers, thanks to the generous support of MadCap Software.

Lunch Breaks

Wednesday and Thursday lunches were included in the cost of the registration fee. They were served buffet style in the restaurant, and offered something to suit everyone. On Friday, we went walkabout to see some Darwin City sights, and people chose their own lunch wherever it suited their fancy.

Trivia Night

Thursday 13th May, 7.00 pm - 9:00pm

"Uncle" Dave's Trivia Night has become a legendary event at AODC. The 2010 winners (The Mindil Maniacs) are pictured at right with "Uncle" Dave himself. They are proudly displaying the perpetual Shoe Shiner trophy. There was no cost to attend the 2010 Trivia Night, apart from the cost of food, drink, and bribes.
