We were delighted and honoured to host the brilliant collective of over 100 minds that gathered both on and off stage for our second annual consumer data conference Data (R)Evolution on Tuesday 19 November 2019.

Bringing together national and global perspectives from across sectors, the day kicked off with a keynote from ACCC Chair, Rod Sims and eSafety Commissioner, Julie Inman Grant on the emerging opportunities and challenges for policymakers and regulators. Check out Rod’s speech here.

Other key speakers included:

  • Human Rights Commissioner, Edward Santow who is currently consulting on the Human Rights and Technology project;
  • Interim National Data Commissioner, Deborah Anton who is overseeing the Australian Government Data Sharing and Release reforms;
  • Global speakers Finn Lützow-Holm Myrstad, the Director of Digital Policy at Norwegian Consumer and Marco Pierani, the Public Affairs and Media Relations Director for the largest group of consumer organisations in Europe, Euroconsumers.

Thank you so much to everyone that attended on the day. We hope you learned something new, met those you don’t normally get a chance to engage with and will continue forward-looking and collaborative discussions back in your workplaces and communities.

We firmly believe in the ingenuity, intellect and capabilities of the Australian policy community. Together, we can put consumers and people at the heart of change and build a future that engenders trust, safety, fairness and fosters sustainable economic growth.
