Corrs Chambers Westgarth executive partner Andrew Messenger will be an active member of the judging panel for App Aid, an exciting charity event being held in Sydney next week.
Hosted by the Vodafone Foundation, App Aid will see the creation of smartphone apps designed to help charities that support people in need.
Selected charities and app developers will work together in teams to create working prototypes to present to a judging panel of industry experts, including high-profile venture capitalist and former Apple fellow, Guy Kawasaki; Chief Executive, Vodafone Australia and Chairman of the Vodafone Foundation, Bill Morrow; and Demelza Farr, Head of the Vodafone Foundation.
The Vodafone Foundation’s core purpose is to ‘Mobilise the community to drive social change’. The App Aid event will connect some of Australia’s most talented app developers with a number of charities who could really use the help. Together, they’ll create apps that will make a difference to these charities and the work that they do.

He has been an adviser to both the Department of Broadband Communications and the Digital Economy and NBN Co itself in relation to the conception and implementation of the National Broadband Network.
