Hugh Bradlow the former Chief Technology Officer of Telstra, and the current President of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering led an engaging discussion this morning in Melbourne at a Derwent  event attended by 50 of Australia's leading Non-Executive Directors and Chairs.

As the outgoing Chief Scientist for Telstra and a lifelong champion of tech, Hugh made quite a few interesting predictions to our audience about the future of technology.

Our audience comments included:

‘Very practical recommendations and thoughts from an experienced, and entertaining speaker.’

‘It was great to see discussions starting to promote the need for Board level experience and exposure to technology/data/digital & disruption.’

‘A highly relevant presentation. These are issues we need to be aware of to secure shareholder value, as well as opening my eyes to unheard-of technologies.’
