Gavin has spent over 20 years in marketing technology, product development, engineering, IT and business development and has diversified experience in manufacturing information technology, process engineering, project management, product development and commercialisation and business development.
As professionals we are impacted daily by a wave of technological change and new information.  We can feel overwhelmed by the changes around us and we feel unsure how we can continue to develop professionally to grow our businesses and take advantage of these new opportunities.
Gavin will share some of his personal experiences of the new information age and present a vision of the future of professional work.  This will encourage you to embrace the changes so that you too can surf the “information tsunami” and take your businesses forward with confidence.
“My new business is about helping authors, coaches, teachers and experts reach a wider audience and make a bigger impact using online media and technology.     It is a journey that I expect will take some time to come to fruition, but I firmly believe that technology will continue to change the way we reach people, communicate and connect.”
