From Oracle Meetup site:

Today about 100 of the world's most talented DBAs work in his company across 15 countries. Paul is visiting Sydney in October and this is a wonderful opportunity to hear his experiences and opinions on what skills, practices and disciplines a modern DBA should master to gain a success in this demanding and rewarding career. The intended audience is DBAs, Apps DBAs, Systems Administrators, Systems Architects, Operations Managers and IT Managers. We will have an open follow-up discussion after Paul’s presentation where any related questions will be on-topic.
