In April 2015, NSW Premier Mike Baird announced the appointment of retired Australian Army Brigadier Darren Naumann to lead the recovery of the storm-ravaged Hunter and Central Coast.

Darren chaired the Regional Recovery Committee with representatives from local councils and government agencies including the State Emergency Service, police, family and community services, health and transport.

Darren retired from the Army in early 2015 after 34 years of service.  His final five years in Defence were as Director-General Capital Facilities and Infrastructure, managing the delivery of capital construction projects on Defence bases across Australia – a $7 billion portfolio of some 200 active projects.

Darren is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers Australia, and a Certified Practicing Portfolio Executive of the Australian Institute of Project Management. He was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia in the 2015 Queen’s Birthday Honours List.  He lives with his family in Canberra.

Keynote Title IMSendai™ – Incident Management Solutions (IMS) – made in Australia.

Presentation Overview
According to the United Nations Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030) global disasters over the last ten years resulted in 700,000 casualties, 1.4 million injuries and 23 million homeless affecting more than 1.5 billion people and resulting in economic loss of US$1.3 trillion.

This presentation showcases agile and innovative Australian IMS research and development utilising advanced Project and Collaboration capability from Atlassian, a 2002 NSW start-up now valued on NASDAQ at US$4.6 billion, augmented with best-of-breed global Open Source QGIS capability.

The application of IMS goes beyond natural and man-made (terrorism) disaster management, but can be applied to Utility/Telco/Government business use cases where desk-bound incidents/issues with a spatial context require effective process flows including effective off-line (sometimes connected) Mobility scenarios, for example customer call centres or control rooms communicating with first responders, other agencies or the general public.
