Leadership in the age of automation
In this uncertain future largely driven by the arrival of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, let's think about what I see as the most important skills for leaders to be considering.
Modern Leadership Styles Reshaping the Digital Economy
The digital revolution is causing an enormous change in reshaping leadership styles. These changes include swift and far-reaching technological changes, a shift from physical attributes towards knowledge, more dispersed and less hierarchical forms of organization and globalization that supports the spread of information.
Learning from Leadership
Where do we look for leaders? What do we expect of them? Where are the men and women with integrity, imagination, compassion, vision and the ability to transmit that vision in a way that will galvanise the nation?
Humanising brands with AI
In a world where disruption has become the norm, super-intelligent computers have the potential to revolutionize how we both govern and conduct business - yet it is not always immediately obvious how the science of artificial intelligence can help shape image and brand identity. Dr Catriona Wallace takes a moment to help us identify the challenges of AI and marketing, and where they intersect.
The language of brands
It’s often said that the marketers need to learn the language of the board. I’m not so sure this is right. From what I see it’s more the case that the board needs to learn the language of the marketers, and that language is brand.
Profits through purpose
Given the state of the world in which we find ourselves, it’s never been more important for companies to understand and moderate their impact on the world.
'Doing well by doing good' can be a strategy that works to drive results, not a mere cliché or buzzword - But how do we make the choice between profit and purpose?
Developing social awareness
In order to develop a proper social awareness, the mythical, cultural and geopolitical precepts should be reconsidered allowing for a new way of thinking to be untethered.
How do we break through the cultural points of view that segregate us, preventing us from the ability of holding a cohesive social conscience?
Ethics, Artificial Intelligence & Human Rights
Artificial Intelligence is regarded as the most powerful transformation to affect business and society since the invention of electricity - and is now in reach of the Board and Executive team.
So how should our business leaders consider the ethical challenges that A.I. presents?
How the election can impact the economy
A Labor win in the election will mean big changes in a number of key policy areas – negative gearing rules will change as will refunds of franking credits and capital gains tax concessions.
This will have important implications for investors, financial planners and the economy. Investment in new dwellings is likely to get as boost, as will shares in companies not paying the previously appealing 100% fully franked dividends.
The RBA and the Election
The election looms large and which ever side wins, they will be confronted with an economy growing below trend, low inflation and a global backdrop where conditions are weakening.
Will the promises being made now need to be refined?

3 ways teachers can shift from 'content delivery' to 'capability building'
As we consider how to make our classroom and school system "future fit", one of the most important things we need to embrace as educators is a paradigm shift from focussing on content delivery to capability building.
Who motivates the motivators?

Innovation in Education
I love speaking to groups of people involved in education because education is so important, and there are so many opportunities to improve the way we do it. However, there is also frustration in the education sector because it’s so big and dependent on government funding, and change can often appear slow.
3 New Paradigms for Pedagogy
Over a century ago, the great educationalist John Dewey remarked: “If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.”
There is no change without behaviour change. Education has never been more important. In fact, it is hard to overstate just how critical it is to get education 'right', given the point at which we find ourselves.

Here’s a few simple steps that enables innovation to happen.
