Paul Buckley

Paul Buckley – Chief Executive Officer After graduating from ANU Computer Science and a Grad Diploma in Expert Systems and the Human Computer Interface, Paul worked in several major Commonwealth Departments for seven years, including heading up major Expert Systems rollouts nationally. Paul was the Federal Government representative on the ACT Government’s Austouch program which integrated local and federal delivery around Canberra. He then struck out with his own company, Datatrax, in 1993. Datatrax launched the initial TourismTouchscreen system at the Rydges Canberra Capital Hill to an auditorium which was packed with the majority of iconic tourism operators from around the nation’s capital.The ongoing upgrade of the network throughout three nations, the continual review of the visitor centres in several other nations, and the foray into the mobile market has provided some insight into the challenges and opportunities facing visitor centres, both in keeping up with the pace of change within IT over two decades and in harnessing existing resources for an expanding digital strategy.
