Actions Speak Louder Than Words

I am a true believer of the saying ‘Actions Speak Louder Than Words’ and I think the base for any Change starts with Actions. Those Actions need to be based on solid objectives and principles if you want to attract support from others for the cause. However, it’s important to translate Actions into Words as well, so that whoever didn’t see the actual Actions get the message.

The Great Trivia Night

ACS Victorian Young IT events are getting popular day by day. Last week, we had a Young IT in the Pub – Trivia Night, which became a true success and was so much fun. The questions were from a range of areas and they were fairly difficult which made groups really discuss among themselves before answering. I think that was great for networking, so that people talk to each other and get to know each other better. Scott Evans from the Melbourne Mentor group was our special guest and Fiona Teakle ran the Trivia. Thanks to everyone who attended and supported and we need your continuous support to do more amazing things.

Some photos from the night:
