Over a few drinks we’ll get real about contracts and awards, pay rates, and the realities of working in the LIS industry in Sydney. So that we can talk more freely, we ask that there be no social media generated on the night during the discussion. We hope you can make time to join us there.
But even if you can’t make it, you can still help to make this event a success by completing our survey and by sharing it with others in Sydney and NSW. This anonymous survey will help to form the talking points for the evening, and those attending #IRLLibChat will get the first look at the survey results.

Have you ever wanted to present at a conference? Maybe you’re considering submitting a proposal to NLS9? Or looking to build you conference presenting confidence. There is a lot to consider – submission guidelines, fitting into conference themes, presentation format, developing a presentation style, and sticking to a word count.
Join us to hear stories and advice on submitting proposals and presenting from our panel of experienced speakers. Panel presentations will be followed by a Q&A session.
