August Meeting - BankWest Hack Day

The August meeting is coming up (Thursday 7th) and it just so happens that it's the same day as the 2014 BankWest Hack Day. What is this?
At Bankwest, Hack Days are at the epicentre of our collaborative culture.  Every four months, over 600 colleagues get involved by suggesting ideas, rolling up their sleeves and 'hack'ing their way to a solution, or attending our showcases. The ideas range from large-scale innovations to small fixes and all focus on improving our processes, service offering and productivity.
Our Hack Days have become renowned for bringing colleagues together to collaborate on ideas they feel passionately about, boosting engagement as it gives people the power to choose what they work on. In 24 hours, our colleagues have achieved amazing results which have saved the organisation time, money as well as contributed to our best-in-class colleague engagement.
Sounds cool. And we're invited!

Here's an overview of the schedule:

5:30pm: Arrive at Level 1, 300 Murray Street. BankWest teams will come down and pitch us on what they are working on. We get to vote on which idea's/presentations are our favorites.
6:30pm: Pizza and mingle
7:30pm: To the pub!

If you want to attend you must RSVP and you will be asked to sign an Non-Disclosure Agreement which will be provided by BankWest.

Your details will be sent to BankWest who will send you an NDA to sign.

WHEN: Thursday 7th August, 5:30pm
