Brad continues to write on technology-driven change for numerous publications and also works directly with businesses and community organisations to create strategy documents, research reports and discussion papers, and facilitate workshops that bring greater understanding about the impact of change and the possible responses.

He is a passionate advocate for the need to ensure that all members of society can share the benefits of digital technology, having served as Ambassador for the Broadband for the Bush Alliance and Champion for the National Year of Digital inclusion. Brad believes that as more and more elements of society switch to digital technology it is vital that we do not create a society of digital ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’, but instead ensure everyone has access to digital services and the training to use them effectively.

He is also in demand as an MC, having hosted conferences and events for organisations including the Committee for Melbourne, the AHRI and Worksafe Tasmania. Brad brings deep domain experience across numerous industries, and his background as a journalist makes him well suited to facilitating panel sessions and on-stage interviews.

Brad’s message is simple – If change is not optional, then neither is foresight.
