ne[x]twork Sydney 2011

Last week saw the final event of Fuji Xerox Australia’s 2011 “ne[x]twork” roadshow in Sydney. Every year that I’ve been involved with FXA they create a traveling roadshow which brings together aspects of their thought leadership and their technologies, and ne[x]twork was certainly that. The focus was on the “future of work”, and featured three […]

The research challenge

The research challenge

Last week I did my first Higher Degree Research Colloquium at the Deakin Graduate School of Business and Law. A colloquium is an academic meeting or seminar at which researchers present their work to be critiqued by other academics.  Like all “tribes” the academic community has its own language, traditions and expectations, and a research […]
