  • 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?

    Is spending more money the key to increasing innovation?

    14 May, 2018

    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 for it. Part of the […]

    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

    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 huge carrots in front of them, such as cash bonuses, nothing seems to […]

    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 […]

  • Are you focusing on what really matters in life?

    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 […]

    How will the sharing economy affect retailers?

    19 March, 2018

    10 years ago, many people thought the rise of the online economy spelt doom for all retailers. While this has happened to an extent in some industries (such as the book retailing industry), many of the traditional retail players are still around and thriving. In many cases, this is because they have embraced the online […]

  • Shared assets: Do you need to own the things you use?

    Shared assets: Do you need to own the things you use?

    12 March, 2018

    A generation or so ago, there was a widespread expectation that when we grew up, we’d get a stable job, get married, buy a house together, and live in the suburbs with a car or two to get us around. While we are certainly doing things quite differently these days, many of us still live […]

    04 March, 2018

    Let’s say you want to start a business in the prosperous Australian FinTech industry. Those already in the financial services industry might have some idea where to start, but what if your background is in another area and you feel opportunity calling? Where should you be looking?
