This event is fully booked or has passed.

Regrettably TelSoc has had to cancel this event. It appears that the ongoing Covid situation means that most people are still working from home and consequently unable to attend a CBD physical event.

TelSoc expects to consider bringing David Piltz's input to all via an online format at a later date. Stay tuned!

Telecommunications is no longer about telephone calls at home and the major changes we have seen over the last 20 years will probably be dwarfed by the changes still to come. 

Part of understanding the future is understanding and learning lessons from the past. Heritage Telecommunications Ltd. (HTL) has been established to professionally organise and catalogue the Heritage collection and the operation of the National Communications Museum; the largest  specialist telecommunications museum anywhere in the World.



Henry Sutton has an astounding list of accomplishments in many areas, which are all now detailed in his great-granddaughter's book "Henry Sutton the Innovative Man"

We will also be joined live by TelSoc Members from around Australia.
