----- End Table of Contents.

Now I am not suggesting this is in anyway perfect - but it does show a decent amount of thought, planning and energy went into getting a diverse range of speakers and there was a lot of variety of input. Sure the topics are a little dated but there is a lot there!

Given 10 years have passed we should be doing a lot better than what was done here. Instead we seem to be narrower and obviously way to hasty!

Sad that. A good idea if properly executed - but I really doubt this new Summit will get us anywhere!

David.

David, I agree. the usual talking heads, with little real world experience. But the Minister can at least say she was "doing" something!
cheers,
Paul.
