  3. Hi Guys, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in speaking at a student nurse conference at Liverpool John Moores university September 1st regarding emigrating abroad (Oz) If you are in the middle of the process now, or nearly leaving for Oz then you would be perfect. The students just want to know what you had to do, some contact details possibly, costs incurred etc etc I'm sure they'd have questions for you. If you have already emigrated and just happen to be on holiday in the UK and you would talk then again that would be great. Thank you guys hope to hear from you :jiggy: Luise P.S lunch, tea and coffee would be provided x
  4. link for the MIA immigration conference 8-11 oct Media Release: Migration 2009 Conference Media Release: Migration 2009 Conference 1 October 2009 — Australia's migration experts will take centre stage in Melbourne next week as migration agents meet to discuss changes to the way people from other countries are allowed to live, work and study in Australia in a changing economic, political and globally-aware climate. The Migration 2009 Conference will attract more than 150 professionals to The Sebel, Albert Park from 8-11 October 2009, including migration advice professionals, lawyers, Commonwealth and State government agencies, skills assessment authorities, education providers, and community and refugee organisations. CEO of the Migration Institute of Australia, Maurene Horder, said the conference is attracting a range of professionals who are at the forefront of the immigration debate, such as Accredited Immigration Law Specialists and migration academics. Keynote speakers at the conference include: The Honourable Laurie Ferguson, Parliamentary Secretary for Multicultural Affairs and Settlement Services speaking on the 2009-10 Migration program Peter Mares, Journalist and presenter of The National Interest, ABC Radio National speaking on policy challenges posed by Australia’s rapid shift towards temporary migration. Dr James Jupp (AM), Director of the Centre for Immigration and Multicultural Studies, ANU speaking on the future of immigration Waleed Aly, Lecturer in Politics, Monash University speaking on Immigration and Globalisation - Australia’s Challenges. "Immigration policy has been going through unprecedented change. People’s lives are being affected by the many recent amendments to all classes of visas. This conference will explore the economic and social impacts.” Ms Horder said. “This is happening at the same time as an increasing focus on international students. It is time for change in the profession and we’ll also be putting ethics and professional practice of migration agents under the microscope.” Conference sponsors include Westpac and Medibank Private
  5. It is well known that humour is regional, but this is the first joke that I can say is truly South Aussie: At a national conference of the Australian Hotels Association, the generalmanagers of Cascade Brewery (Tasmania), Tooheys (New South Wales), XXXX (Queensland), CUB (Victoria) and Coopers (South Australia) found themselves sitting at the same table for lunch. When the waitress asked what they wantedto drink, the GM of Tooheys said without hesitation, "I'll have a TooheysNew." The head of XXXX smiled and said, “Make mine a XXXX Gold." To which the General Manager of Carlton & United, said "I'll have a VB, the King of Beers." And the bloke from Cascade asked for"a Cascade, the cleanest draught on the planet." The owner of Coopers paused a moment and then placed his order: "I'll have a Diet Coke." Theothers looked at him has if he had sprouted a new head. "Well,” he said with a shrug, “if you poofters aren't drinking beer, then neither will I." :twitcy:
  6. Hi, I was just wondering if anyone is going to attend the Emigrate 2 Conference at Epsom Racecourse on 1st March 2009 from 9.30 to 4.30pm. We will be attending and would like to like to know if you want to meet up either during or after? Please reply to this thread if you would. Many Thanks Toni 37:laugh: Antony 40:spinny: Gregg 17 & Poppie 8
  7. Hi all We have just got back from the Emigrate conference and are really glad we went. Got some useful information and made some good contacts. Mathew from 'This is Australia' was particularly helpful and had some interesting news on a potential job for OH in Toowoomba, Queensland. We have decided that we need to choose an agent to go with by the end of March after we have been to the Expo on 16 March. I am getting impatient to start the visa process but OH is being much more sensible about doing plenty of research first. Petra
