& Founder of 42 Adelaide

Louise Nobes

“When I first learned of 42, I believed it represented what KIK Innovation strives to achieve but at a global scale. Great minds are everywhere and 42 is ‘altruism’ brought into reality. Starting my career as a social worker and then as I moved into education, entrepreneurship, and business, I was still searching for solutions that removed some of the greatest barriers to education for disadvantaged young people. 42 is a great solution to unlocking the potential in anyone”.


Annette Reid

“What I love about what 42 Adelaide offers, is the opportunity for people to create their own way. My journey to working in the tech industry came about in a nontraditional way, and I believe that the very different style of learning that 42 delivers, will give our students alternative routes into the tech industry that weren’t available in previous educational settings. I will be working alongside students to make their goals a reality and I am passionate about sharing my skills and knowledge and watching young people reach their full potential.”

Julie Browne

“Having worked in the education sector for much of my career I have witnessed the dynamic challenges that the explosion in the tech sector has had on the traditional education pathways in the sector. Industries are crying out for coding talent now and 42 Adelaide provides the solution to matching employer needs with students from all walks of life. Completely free, 42’s disruptive education model removes the barriers to education and unlocks people’s potential to be their best. I’m very proud to be associated with such an epic organisation and together with the rest of our team love to witness our students progress along the 42 pathway to become the a best tech talent in Australia and globally.”

Melinda Ho

“42 Adelaide is not just a school, it’s not just an organisation. It’s a passion and a new opportunity to bring hidden talent to the tech world and giving people the chance to make a difference in their own lives and into the future of the world we all share. I cherish every day here at 42 with the best people and the best environment.”

Deborah Pickard

“It’s been so great being part of the 42 Adelaide journey and seeing the joy people have when they get an opportunity they never thought possible. I’ve met some of the most awesome people at 42 with different stories and different reasons for being here. I can’t imagine a better way to join the tech sector.”
