Flying Cars / ABC Illawarra

Date posted: June 14, 2018

Uber Air made a splash today announcing that they are currently investigating either Sydney or Melbourne as a possible third international site for a trial of their new Uber Air taxi service. Over the past few weeks we've seen a few of these announcements from various potential players and there seems to be a growing interest from passengers as well as governments and investors. This afternoon I caught up with Illawarra's ABC Radio's Lindsay McDougall to chat about all things flying cars including these:     Uber Air [embed][/embed] E Hang [embed]https://www.yo

img-20161024-wa0017Live from the ARTN conference in Roma Queensland and just before I jumped on stage to deliver the opening keynote for the Australian Regional Tourism Network's national conference, I caught up with ABC Far North's Kier Shorey to look at the Future of Australia's Regional Tourism and the many changes awaiting them. Globally travellers will rise from 25 million in 1950, to 1.087 million in 2013 to 1.8 billion international in 2030 accounting for 1 in every 11 years jobs globally, 6% of all world exports and 29% of all service exports. On the back of this tremendous global growth, regional tourism is also set to rise and I argued is in an incredib

Airports of the Future – a passportless journey / ABC Radio National

my-australian-passport-cover Airports should evoke a sense of excitement as we dash off to a new destination or start a grand adventure, but for numerous travellers airports are overwhelming and stressful. For those who cannot escape to the sanctuary of an airport lounge, there can be long lines and pushy passengers. But soon airports could become a destination themselves: a bright and airy haven of comfort and calm. Travellers will be able to glide through with limited human interaction armed only with a smart phone and a smile. And don't worry about your passport because by 2050 they'll be outdated and totally in the cloud, or wherever we choose to store

What’s over the job and career horizon?

future careerThere's a lot of conversation going on around the future of careers and jobs, given recent manufacturing and mining redundancy announcements and it has everyone asking what careers and jobs are future proof and which are not. Firstly many of today's and yesterdays professions will still be around including - teachers, doctors, health professionals, retailers and many others will still be around in 50 years, but how they do their jobs, where and when they do it and how important it may be, will evolve over time. The foresight issue is that today's Grade 1 student will

Unlearn the Future – Morris Live at TEDx Melbourne

Date posted: December 20, 2013

To have the TEDx stage for 18 minutes is a privilege and an honor. To use this global platform to tell the story of my family's past, to introduce my ancestors who have not been spoken of or seen in over 70 years to a worldwide audience that they could never have imagined and to combine all of this with my love of the infinite possibilities of the future and what we must each do to allow these opportunities into our lives is a gift that I will cherish forever - thank you!! I would love you to watch it, like it and leave a comment to let me know what you see ahead and what excess baggage you're leaving behind to make room for the future and an enormous thank you to the 1,000+ people that watched it within the first 24 hours of it being put up on YouTube.

Homemade TEDx

Date posted: December 9, 2013

I was sent this homemade version of last week's TEDx presentation, it reminds me of the counterfeit movies (not that I have ever seen one) where you can see the tops of the audiences heads, occasionally hear their comments and the vision is not quite right, but I though it was worth posting anyway, until the real thing arrives.
