  • Time(s):5:30-7:30PM AWST
  • Venue:Frisk Small Bar


  • Type:Networking
  • Industry:Education


We're headed back to an old favourite and inviting a speaker along for the ride!

That's right - an absolute legend from Melbourne is flying in just to join us for drinks

Join us at Frisk in Northbridge for a gin, or twelve, as we discuss digital transformation, innovation. and building a multi-million startup from a scrappy MVP with Sked Social founder Hugh Stephens.

Will we see you there?



Insightful investor and serial start-upper Hugh sees digital transformation and innovation opportunities everywhere.

A self-described ‘failed medical student’ with a penchant for code, he eschewed the world of medicine for a life as an entrepreneur. He's built a consulting business, become a renowned start-up investor, and build Insta management platform Sked from a spare-bedroom side project into a $multi-million international business.

Along the way, he has worked with a dizzying array of big-name brands and became one of SmartCompany’s ‘Hot 30 under 30’ entrepreneurs (two years running). He has also been listed in the Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia.



CEDA: Cybercrime - a WA attack

Austal Chief Executive Officer, David Singleton will share for the first time a detailed account of their cyber-attack and the cost to business and reputation.

  • Dates:Oct 29
  • Time(s):11.30am to 2.00pm
  • Venue:State Reception Centre, Fraser's Kings Park, 60 Fraser Avenue, West Perth



Cybercrime is a growing threat to organisations, infrastructure and the economy. CEDA’s event will provide an informative overview of the attack and the processes and procedures required to return to business as usual. Coupled with a keynote presentation by David Singleton, a panel of cyber experts – WA AustCyber Innovation Hub, Director, Dr Ian Martinus, Horizon Power Cyber and Information Security Officer, Jeff Campbell and Rochelle Fleming from Sapien Cyber will provide policy, infrastructure and technological updates.
Most agree it’s not ‘if’ but ‘when’ attacks will happen and therefore this discussion will highlight the importance of a proactive approach to taking responsibility for cybersecurity risks, especially with regards to essential infrastructure and governance. Cybersecurity is not an option, it needs to be at the forefront of every process as we continue the migration to an interconnected society with the coming of age of automation, big data and the internet of things (IoT).

Leadership Maturity & Vertical Development

Most of us are familiar with the idea that “the significant problems that we face today cannot be solved with the same level of thinking we were at when we created them” (Einstein).

  • Dates:Oct 29
  • Time(s):5.30pm - 7.30pm
  • Venue:Leadership Centre


  • Type:Networking,Talks
  • Industry:Leadership,Education,Human Resources
  • Hosted By:AIM WA



The Challenge of Growing Bigger Minds

Most of us are familiar with the idea that “the significant problems that we face today cannot be solved with the same level of  thinking we were at when we created them” (Einstein). But how do we assess and develop our “level of thinking”?

As leaders face ever more complex adaptive challenges, it would appear that cultivating new levels of thinking is increasingly necessary. So how might organisations measure the “level of thinking” in their leadership community? And how might leaders assess whether the level of thinking is a match for their leadership challenges and develop increased capacity where it is required?

In this session, Angela explores these questions through the lens of the Leadership Maturity Framework. She will take us on a journey through the seven stages of adult development (or levels of thinking) typically seen in organisations and how each stage impacts organisational performance and shapes organisational culture.

Vertical development (the work of growing bigger minds) has been identified by the Centre for Creative Leadership as the fastest growing trend in leadership development and you will leave this session with:
• Greater insight into your own stage of development
• An appreciation for the capacities and limitations of others’ stage of development
• Insight into the value of horizontal and vertical development
• Ideas for tapping into the hidden developmental capacity in your organisation.

Innovation Central Perth Breakfast Event

WISE Morning Coffee Insights: Understanding the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) for non-technical people. Join us for your morning coffee and croissant as we explore the fundamentals of IIoT.

  • Time(s):7.15am to 9.00am
  • Venue:Curtin St Georges Terrace


  • Type:Networking,Breakfasts
  • Industry:Leadership,Education,Technology
  • Hosted By:Curtin University


Innovation Central Perth's WISE program invites you to join us as we look into building IIoT capability within organisations.

By 2020, an estimated 50 billion devices around the globe will be connected to the Internet. The "Internet of Things” (IoT) incorporates major technology industry trends such as cloud computing, data analytics, and mobile communications, but goes beyond them, offering almost limitless versatility.

This versatility provides immense opportunities for IoT in the industrial space (IIoT) and our event will provide insights into considering IIoT enablement. It will illustrate how IIoT adoption and deployment is different for every organisation, but there are key fundamentals to consider when building strategy - such as the technology, the integration challenges, the stakeholders, and the cultural awareness that needs to happen around innovation vs traditional business case decision making.

If you are contemplating adopting or trialling IIoT, or are in the process of initiating IoT projects, then this event is for you! It’s also particularly useful for non-technical people who want to understand the key concepts, terminology and fundamental building blocks of how IIoT enables automation in industrial sectors.

Please note this event is capped at 70 attendees so be quick to register!

The engineering and construction landscape is going through a phase of accelerated transformation due to forces both inside and outside the sector. Multiple megatrends (such as population growth, urbanisation, and innovation) are demanding greater consideration for long-term sustainability and creating fertile conditions  for rapid change. How we build (methods & materials) is thus evolving, and this will inevitably influence how residential property is developed in WA. How will the homes of the future be built?

Hear from-

  • Bert Bardoel, EY Oceania Engineering & Construction Leader, as he presents the findings of EY International’s research on the Construction Sector Transformation, including global trends and predictions.
  • Michael Berglin, Deputy CEO & Robin Gerum, Head of Business Development & Strategy at Serneke (Sweden’s fastest growing construction company) as they talk collaborative design for buildability & sustainability, construction planning & use of offsite prefabrication, and preparing for the future.
  • Bill Scanlan, EY Director will then release the findings of the UDIA WA commissioned research on the potential outcomes & implications of adopting modern housing construction methods here in WA.

Does using materials other than double brick affect housing affordability through reduced lot construction requirements and shorter construction time frames? What sort of sustainability outcomes can the use of different methods & materials drive?

This is your chance to hear insights on global best practice direct from international leaders, and be the first to hear the results of important local research.

Overcoming Obstacles to Create a Champion Mindset

Creating a champion mindset requires a holistic view of our development; one which encompasses our physical wellness through mind and body connection.

  • Dates:Nov 6
  • Time(s):12.00pm - 2.00pm
  • Venue:Leadership Centre


  • Type:Workshops,Courses,Networking,Lunches
  • Industry:Leadership,Education
  • Hosted By:AIM WA



Yoga and mindset control are powerful tools for overcoming obstacles in our lives. Often we perceive failures as negatives, but changing our view so we see them as a learning opportunity, ultimately leads to success.

Creating a champion mindset requires a holistic view of our development; one which encompasses our physical wellness through mind and body connection. Yoga provides a great foundation for this connection.

At the session, we will explore how a heightened awareness of our physical body, using basic yoga postures (asana), can help us adopt new strategies to avoid “failure”. With this heightened awareness, and the application of our new strategy, we can remove many of the physical obstacles which we believe prevent us from doing a given posture. The same approach can be applied to our mental or emotional beliefs around the same posture.

We’ll connect the building blocks of this physical, mental and emotional approach to postures in Yoga with the fundamental thought processes of a positive mindset, and show how long term development requires greater perspective and perseverance.

Join us for lunch and learn:
• An appreciation for greater perspective through a heightened awareness of self
• Practical tools to create mind and body connection
• Strategies to create a positive mindset.

The yoga asana explored in this session are very basic and don’t require any
experience of yoga, or special clothing.

Curtin University’s top researchers will be sharing their insights into some of today's most talked-about subjects in this series of FREE lunchtime talks.
