A reflection from our Director Helen Ahrens after she spoke at Open State's Bright Minds, Brilliant City event.

"I'm passionate about speaking about engaging young people, vibrant communities, emerging technologies and digital connectivity. Thanks to AECOM for inviting me to speak at Open State Bright Minds, Brilliant City event recently on just that!

Bright Minds, Brilliant City – all part of Adelaide’s Open State Festival - discussed technology as an enabler, the role of government in driving innovation, the influence of Asia, and everything in between. High-density, inner-city living breathing life into Adelaide's CBD? Autonomous vehicles replacing cars (and parking)?
