    Why what you don’t know about your customer could cost you a fortune

    31 October, 2018

    Have you ever tried to buy a wedding gift for an acquaintance? Tricky, isn’t it? You may have an idea of what they might like, but you’re not sure and you want to buy them something they’ll appreciate and use. What about someone a bit closer to you? Maybe a cousin or someone you work […]

    Why blockchain could be good for your health – and other things, too

    31 October, 2018

    Go on, admit it. You’ve heard people talking about blockchain technology and you’ve smiled and nodded your head while having no idea what they were talking about. They may as well have been speaking another language. I’ll let you in on a secret – you’re not alone. Even if you’ve looked up ‘blockchain’ on Google, […]

    Why we still need physical bases in a digital world

    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 ‘should’ be doing to keep up with […]

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

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

    27 September, 2018

    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

    09 April, 2018

    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 […]
