Each year TelSoc hosts the Henry Sutton Oration in Melbourne to commemorate the distinguished Victorian scientist, engineer and inventor from Ballarat, Henry Sutton - who is scarcely known, but who had a string of accomplishments and innovations in many areas.
This year, TelSoc is pleased to have a distinguished innovator in his own right who has agreed to give the 2015 oration:
Håkan Eriksson, CEO of Ericsson Australia and the former CTO of LM Ericsson
“What technological innovations are expected in the next decade and what differences do they promise for our lives?”
Please join Håkon and TelSoc for lunch and drinks at the Telstra Theatrette.
Håkan Eriksson is the CEO of Ericsson Australia and New Zealand. He has a masters in electrical engineering from Linköping University and received a scholarship from Stanford University. He joined Ericsson from university and later was appointed Group CTO of LM Ericsson, Stockholm, and Head of Ericsson Research.
