What's holding innovation back? Do we need to widen the conversation from startups to scale-ups? Do we need to make innovation 'real' for people? What form of government support would help ignite innovation?
David Thodey has a unique perspective on the future of innovation in Australia, as chair of the CSIRO and Jobs for NSW, and as a former Chief Executive of both Telstra and IBM Australia.
Come hear him speak, and answer questions, at this free event hosted by UTS Business School.
"What an amazing time in human history … The digital revolution is all the time creating so much that is new - networked citizens, new paradigms for value creation, new ways to solve problems and learn, work, govern and lead.
"The extraordinary growth, both in the capability of new technologies and the creativity of new business models, are at the heart of much of it ... All of this change has implications for leaders, companies and nations."
