An afternoon with Jack

Esri Founder and President Jack Dangermond is considered by US President Barack Obama as one of the biggest change advocates of the digital age. Bill Gates describes him as “one of a kind” and attributes him to the rise of modern mapping.

On Thursday 13 October, against one of Australia's most iconic backdrops, the Sydney Opera House, Jack provided Australian audiences with a rare insight into the vision driving his Geographic Information System (GIS) empire, and shared his advice for getting the most from Esri’s world-leading technology – the ArcGIS platform.

The event marked Jack's first Australian speaking appearance in almost a decade. He was joined on the day by other leading technology evangelists, including 2016 US presidential candidate and former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, Boustead Geospatial Group Managing Director Brett Bundock, and Treasury Wine Estates' GIS trailblazer David Gerner.
