Thursday May 23 Recap: Welcome Choir

The 23rd May played host to the first of many Innovate Hear Meetups. David McAlpine from the Australian Hearing Hub focused on cross-sector collaboration to drive hearing innovation, working towards Macquarie University’s Hearing Strategy 2030.

We were inspired by Sayee Ganjekar, CEO of Innovation Drive who provided an in-depth look at the strategies, resources and programs available to build and sell hardware products in Australia.

Singing not only releases endorphins and stimulates muscle-relaxing nerves, it is an interactive activity that brings people together, creating a collective ‘feel – good’ atmosphere. And that is exactly that happened when the lively crew from Welcome Choir arrived at Venture Café - everyone was up on their feet, singing along to Womack and Womacks ‘Teardrops’.
