If you've got female students in Sydney and Melbourne who might be interested in finding out more about careers in ICT this might be for you http://info.tcs.com/csr-anz-stem
Tata Consultancy Services focuses on empowering communities through education worldwide. In Australia we also choose to focus our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts in this important area. Australia has a shortfall of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professionals.

Nice hotel. Crowded when parliament is sitting. Needs to relocate power points by the bed to be accessible without moving furniture.

Great until the wedding descended on the resort. There was no warning when we booked that they would be having a giant party so it turned from a quiet, relaxed holiday to backpacker Sairee beach. Not impressed that they only informed us on the day. The rooms are stacked right on top of the restaurant so the noise travels straight up and you can't avoid it. This is the most expensive place to stay on the island, and the food & beverage are very very expensive for what you get/compared to the rest of the island. Considering what we spent on diving & our stay I'm very disappointed. Make sure you get it in writing that there will be no weddings or parties if you are going here for peace and quiet.

Fantastic food. The 'strange flavour white cut chicken' is to die for. The best surprise dish on the menu. Cocktails are great too.
