Webinar: Reimagine your business for 2021

Now that Australia is emerging from the Covid lockdown, will it be back to business as usual in 2021?  Or will disruption from trade wars, an end to inner city high rise crowding, lower immigration rates and a long global Covid tail challenge us again?


I’ve spent four decades as an innovator and entrepreneur reimagining how things should be done and changing the game in several industries.  I don't believe it's back to 'business as usual.'


Join me in a new webinar, 'Reimagine your business in 2021,' to explore the risks and opportunities, the emerging megatrends, and how to position your business to take advantage of these extraordinary times of exponential change.


Money isn’t the problem.
The problem is nailing the customer’s problem.

Have you got a team to deliver the goods?
Have you got inside investor’s minds?
Have you made your company investable?
Do you understand the roadmap?


Marketing isn’t the problem.
The problem is working on the business more than in the business
Is the founder the best person to be the CEO?
Have you got the systems to cope with growth?
Have you got a strategy to reach those lofty goals?

The problem isn’t new technology. The problem is developing new business without disrupting existing business

I believe successful innovation requires a fusion of scientific evidence-based
thinking and outside-the-box creativity.

I began as a scientist, but while still in my twenties I started working in audio-visual production, designing communication solutions for businesses.
The ability to think from a different point of view, to provide innovative ways of doing things has been useful throughout a forty year career in diverse fields, including big pharma, taking a startup biotech to an IPO on the ASX, managing investments for a global merchant bank, providing marketing ideas for major companies and more recently in education, where I’ve shown you can teach entrepreneurial skills to academic scientists. I’ve had what they call now a T shaped career, with a deep dive into the commercialisation of science and some adventurous excursions into totally unrelated areas, but somehow it was all useful. Now, I’m passionate about leveraging what I’ve learnt to empower entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs to get their world changing ideas tested, funded, developed and launched.   



The innovation roadmap and related processes are useful for :

Developing a purpose driven organisation
Scoping customer issues crying out for innovation

clean slate
