Hmmm... You can find the answers to these questions on this site. Maybe you should have a bit more thought, do some research and then arrange the session with the relevant topics?

@ Kiwipixter, not often you get a qualified industry person working for a Service Provider offering to give a detailed overview to the general masses.
So anyone that may have a interest especailly Universty and ploytech students in the Technolgy field should be well interested.

Pretty sure he thought about it plenty did you ?... considering the location for this, you would have to hazard a guess tha the has plenty to offer.

I think Kiwipixter is referring to the comment by JohnR... Hey Kiwipixter, JohnR works for Vodafone, he was just making a joke there.

Just like Johnr I would be keen to come along to an event like this in Auckland if it was up here.

Nice Neil - good on you my man for sharing that wee noggin of yours!!
I still remember our white board session that day at STAR - change my understanding in half an hour, set me up to appear almost technical.

For those who haven't been to a session by Neal - if you can, do.
For all those people in Auckland, you could always move to sunny Wellington

Firstly, I am a engineer. I am not from marketing, sales or public relations. Feel free to correct me if I have got anything technically incorrect.
This blog is a place for me to put technical stuff about mobile networks that I feel may be of interest.

Favorite Question from 3rd form (year8) Science Test:
If it takes three days for a bald headed red herring to swim through a barrel of tar then how long is a piece of string?
