Every now and again, I’m invited to share my thoughts on a range of different topics. Here are some of my recent engagements.
the moth sydney: storyslam November 2018
With a theme of “Beginnings” for the event, I told my story about “the beginning of the end… of my career” when I left my job in a bank, to embark on a 1000km, two million step walk across Spain towards Santiago de Compostela. After ten great stories, I was voted the night’s co-winner and will be going to the finals in 2019!
Disrupt Sydney 2018
In this talk, I spoke about my recent research revealing insights into new forms of knowledge work through emerging professional “superheros”; individuals who are helping their organisation to navigate uncertainty, embrace disruption, and create the future, all the while holding down their “day” jobs.
I recently was guest lecturer in three undergraduate classes at the University of Sydney Business School:
WORK2210 Strategic Management course where I spoke about innovation in aged care services and my work with BallyCara as Catalyst in Residence and Director of People & Culture
INFS1020 Digital Work course where I presented my research on coworking space in Australia.
BUDL2901 Leading Creative Futures, part of the high-achiever Dayell undergraduate program where I shared my own story of intrapreneurship and my doctoral research on revealing organisational superheros.
