    03 October, 2018

    Did you know that the Larrakia people from the Darwin region of the Northern Territory had well-established trading routes across Asia and Australia hundreds of years before European settlement? Likewise, the Yolngu people from the Arnhem Land region were known to visit the Makassan people from Sulawesi in Indonesia and vice versa for generations. They […]

    The 4 Key Ingredients Needed to Foster an Innovative Culture at Work

    27 September, 2018

    Have you ever wondered why your organisation just doesn’t seem to be getting anywhere when it comes to creating sustainable innovation practices? If so, maybe it’s time to step back and rethink your whole approach? Innovation isn’t just something organisations can tick off the list of things they think they ‘should’ be doing to keep […]

    How our ancient ‘new’ ideas still work for the collective good

    “Having lived as mobile forages for 99% of our time on Earth, why did our ancestors stop moving and start settling in villages, towns and cities? The process started in the hills of southern Turkey at a site known as Gobekli Tepe. The impulse to be social brought large numbers of people together for seasonal […]

  • Future food: Will it be real enough for our tastebuds?

    Future food: Will it be real enough for our tastebuds?

    04 July, 2018

    Many utopian or space movies, particularly those made in the 60’s and 70’s, gave us visions of what our food supply might look like in the future. Small coloured and neatly processed pills or squares packed full of nutrients but with little visual appeal or large hydroponic farms in the middle of a spaceship seemed […]

    Is spending more money the key to increasing innovation?

    14 May, 2018

    What does innovation look like? You often hear governments and organisations talking about their ‘innovation budgets’ – the money they have allocated for innovative projects that will take them to new and exciting places. However, despite the best of intentions, many organisations end up wasting a lot of this money without having much to show […]

    Why you don’t need to be the boss to be in charge

    07 May, 2018

    Have you ever had a boss that couldn’t manage a team? The sort of boss that everyone either gets frustrated with, hates or ignores? To give them credit, it’s not always their fault. They may have been promoted because they did their previous job really well then, they were put in charge of a team […]

    Why your team motivation strategies aren’t working

    23 April, 2018

    Have you ever wondered why none of the incentives you put on for your team seem to motivate them? Maybe you’re frustrated because they always have to be told what to do or they don’t show any initiative. Even when you dangle carrots in front of them, such as cash bonuses, nothing seems to change […]

    How to use your plastic brain to change your behaviour

    Were you the sort of kid who liked to pull things like radios apart to see how they worked? If you did, you probably also discovered that they had to be reconnected in a specific way to get them to work again. Changing the configuration would only result in the radio being silent. Thankfully, the […]

    Are you focusing on what really matters in life?

    02 April, 2018

    When someone asks, “What do you do?” How does that make you feel? What goes through your head? It’s not an easy question to answer because, often, when people ask it, they’re really asking, “What do you do for a living these days?” They are presuming that you do some sort of paid work and […]

    Why we need to stop thinking of the future in linear terms

    26 March, 2018

    Did you know that today’s smartphones have access to more information than Bill Clinton had the entire time he was president? Or that the first digital camera had a resolution of .01 megapixels, yet today, you can get a 41-megapixel camera as part of a smartphone? We all know that the rate of computing power […]
