She'll be right...

Having grown up in a house with 9 women at one point, all fiercely independent and powerful women at that, ensuring that "she'll be right" is something that's very important to me. Fostering an environment both socially as well as in the workplace that's inclusive enough, where women thrive and are given equal opportunity to develop as leaders, should be important to all of us. Stereotypical feminine qualities that are often seen as weaknesses in workplaces, communities and in politics nowadays, are the very same qualities that we should demand in all leaders. Nurturance, sensitivity, compassion, expressiveness, modesty, humility and of course empathy to name a few. Leaders wanted! We don't just need more females in leadership roles, we need more people in leadership roles to personify stereotypical female qualities. Maybe then, she'll be right...

Are QR codes really the answer?  Who would have thought when the National Cabinet (Australia's state and federal heads of) and their teams got together, to talk about a "state of the art" contact tracing system here in Oz, that was required to bridge the real world to the digital, that we’d land on QR codes... oh my. Today's genius  Think about where we're at with technology in 2021. All the genius we have access to from remote plant climate management like that offered by Roots Sustainable Agriculture. Tech for brain powered prosthetics. Or how about noses (yes, like the one on your face) with artificial intelligence (A.I) like that of Brainchip Holdings, which have the same sniff sensitivity to minute quantities of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) as a dog's nose developed in 2017. These A.I. noses can, through smell, identify diseases including Parkinson's, cancers, kidney failure, multiple sclerosis and infectious diseases, such as, you guessed it,

Why isn't VOICE tech in your digital strategy..?

It's crazy that Amazon Alexa and Google Home still seem kinda new to many, the reality is though, voice technology dates back to the 1950s. However, it hasn’t been until the early part of the twenty-first century that we have really seen voice technology come into its own with huge leaps in computing power, vast amounts of data, advancements in AI and machine learning and investments from large enterprises. New innovative uses for voice-activated technology are seemingly ensuring a strong case for incorporating it in digital strategies. Being such a frictionless form of tech and improving all the time, it’s not hard to see why.  What do we mean by voice marketing? So, we know Alexa, Google Home, Siri, Cortana and their siblings have become everyday technology in the last few years, but voice marketing is about understanding how consumers use them. Currently, 50% of online searches are made via voice with almost 20% of browsing sessions being screenless! Businesses who want to remai

4 Lessons that will help you fast track authenticity

“ Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light. ” Brene Brown - Daring Greatly Since Brene Brown gave her TED Talk “ The Power of Vulnerability ” almost a decade ago, her popularity raised as one of the most sincere voices about leadership, authenticity, and vulnerability. Defined as one of the top gurus for the emotions that nobody wants to talk about, Brown established the connection between how authenticity can affect your relationships with others. For her, authenticity is a daily practice and it's about the choice to show up and be real. In other words, it is about working on your daily personal brand that can allow you to beat the shame and the consequent dis

5 Principles for Developing Innovation

It's no surprise that many companies are desperate to be seen as innovative, customer-centric or digital disruptor's within their industry. What is surprising (and disappointing) is that some think they can 'check the box' by simply creating an innovation team and updating their corporate presentation to include phrases like "innovative culture", "digital disruption", and "emerging markets", with very little actually changing. As you very well know, updating your CRM system, running a course on agile or replacing your marketing automation platform, doesn't put you ahead of the curb you're chasing. Most of the time, it's as deep seeded as a culture change and company ethos shift that that needs to take place. Most forms of innovation, are simply taking an existing problem that your customers or even staff have and solving it. Sometimes, that means solving problems they never knew they had to begin with. "Customers

Technology. Freedom or Addiction?

While there is no shortage of claims of how there will be nothing a human will be able to do better than our AI counterparts in the future, the real question is, what is the actual overarching goal of technology today? I'm not addicted Whatever happened to technology enabling us to better live our lives, by keeping us better informed, connected and empowered? Instead, I feel we are heading down this path of acceptable addiction, where I download an app to help manage my apps. Where I use a SaaS (software as a service) that helps me use another piece of software as well as offer a service. Where I jump on Facebook to 'connect with loved ones' and find myself sucked into a number of rabbit warrens littered with cat videos, conspiracy theorists, memes, birds with arms and generally content design to keep me clicking, watching, consuming all while my details are pawned off to the next advertiser. Ok, I'm addicted Our addiction is so real but we can't quit, w
