“I've never looked back...”

Steven Miles

Coming from a background of leadership in both the educational and sporting areas, Steven was identified as a key candidate to be the Information Technology (IT) Ambassador for CDU.

“Initially I wasn’t sure if I could take on the extra responsibility and load of Ambassador, however I saw that this role gave me a way to serve my fellow peers.” As the IT Ambassador, Steven organised barbeques with industry professionals to give students a taste of what ‘real’ work entailed. These barbeques led to successful employment for many students during and after their IT degrees.

Steven thanks his friend and CDU lecturer Barbara White, with inspiring him to study IT. “She convinced me to transfer across from my teaching degree in 2012, after which I’ve never looked back.”

“I feel that God had a big part to play in my successes in the IT field, and I look forward to see what’s in store next.”

Steven received the IT Ambassador Award, 2014 for ‘Outstanding Commitment to the promotion of Information Technology’.

While studying, Steven worked for the web design company, Captovate, as their Digital Producer. Experience in this role and his leadership skills led Steven to his current position as Web Manager for the Department of Health.
