In Fremantle, Nellie Gaynor presented website training to local businesses as part of the BizLinks program. BizLinks is an initiative through the Small Business Development Corporation for government agencies to provide information to help small businesses develop.

Pilbara Spotlight
The Pilbara came under the spotlight in May as Client Liaison’s Hayley Priestley and Nellie Gaynor joined forces with Census Director Mike Scott and WA Assistant Indigenous Engagement Manager Murray Johnston, to help promote the Pilbara Spotlight website and the 2011 Census.

Mike and Murray’s focus was on working within the community to ensure that the Census 2011 is a success. They visited community and business stakeholders within the Pilbara to discuss issues that may arise in 2011.

Hayley’s presentation on the Spotlight website highlighted how small area data can help businesses and communities. Along with Mike she emphasised the need for a successful Census to ensure that products like the Pilbara Spotlight website remain relevant. http://www.regionalspotlights.com.au/

Career Fair
Every year the Australian Bureau of Statistics visits universities as part of the Careers Fair. Employees go along to discuss the ABS as a possible career option for graduates.

This year the Fair was held at a variety of locations, Murdoch University, Curtin University and University of Western Australia, as well as a major event at the Perth Convention centre.

Nellie Gaynor from the Client Liaison Unit, Howie Manning from Census, David Moir from Technology Applications and Nicole Watts from Consumer Price Index visited Curtin University as part of this year's Careers Fair.

They had the chance to talk to students, who may be contemplating a career at the ABS and about the many different career opportunities that we have to offer.
