This year our guest speaker will be Kara Martin speaking on the topic of “The Past and Future of Work in Ryde”.

From the beginning, people have enjoyed the rich lands and waterways of Ryde, which produced edible plants and fish. Over the years Ryde changed from a food bowl for our first nations people and early settlers, to a hub for small industry. However, the future is startling: Macquarie Park will soon become the 4th largest business district in Australia after Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. In this talk, author and lecturer Kara Martin will share about the future of work, and what opportunities exist for faith communities in Ryde.

Kara has worked in media and communications, human resources, business analysis and policy development roles, in a variety of organisations, and as a consultant.
