    CEOs from around Australia gathered to help raise funds to fight homelessness at the 2013 Vinnies CEO Sleepout. In raising donations for the St Vincent de Paul Society, CEOs braced the cold with nothing more than a cardboard plank for shelter and a sleeping bag. Dinner was a bowl of soup. ARN caught up with several of the IT leaders who braved the wintery conditions for the Sydney sleepout, at Carriageworks. Are you pictured?

    IN PICTURES: The ultimate Fujitsu road-trip

    Travelling from Bundaberg to Cairns, Fujitsu, in conjunction with its distributor in Queensland, MMT, clocked about 2300 kilometres visiting regional resellers, finding out their likes and dislikes in a bid to foster and build a strong vendor/reseller relationship. Fujitsu Products Group, channel development manager, Daniel Campbell, said the company wants to reach out to resellers across the country - and did so one kilometer at a time via a camper van. MMT solutions sales specialist, Adam MacLennan, who tirelessly drove the microbus up the coast, found out from regional resellers and country players what they're doing and what they want from their vendor and distributor partners. Road trip coverage to follow.
