Engineers Australia CEO Stephen Durkin said Cadel’s attendance highlights that Convention 2014 is more than just an engineering event – it’s an opportunity to hear from some of the world’s most respected thought leaders on leadership and innovation.

“Convention 2014 is shaping up as the engineering event of the year and we are incredibly excited to have Cadel share insights from his own career and how science and engineering have influenced his sporting life,” Mr Durkin said.
