Welcome to 2014 Australian Digital Summit hosted by Telstra

digital-summit-hero

It’s time again for the Australian Digital Summit hosted by Telstra, and it’s hard to believe a whole year has passed!

Here at Telstra, a lot has happened in digital in that year, including launching our Digital First program and opening the Telstra Digital Transformation Centre in Sydney (to name a few!).

I’m delighted again to be live blogging again from the event this year. Follow my updates below.

The Telstra Road to Discovery Master Class series

TRTD-hero

The Telstra Road to Discovery’s Master Class series is back for another year, where music lovers from across the country can connect with leading music industry heavyweights.

The second session on Song Writing will air on Monday 20 October at 8pm AEDST and feature multi-award winning producer and songwriter Styalz Fuego, Eskimo Joe’s Kav Temperley and Mushroom Publishing’s Linda Bosidis.

I caught up with Styalz to chat about his role in creating some of the most successful home grown chart hits of the past ten years. Illy, 360, Owl Eyes, Aston Shuffle, Stan Walker, Diafrix, Elizabeth Rose and Seth Sentry are just some of the names with whom he has worked!

The HTC One mini 2, a review

HTC-One-mini-2-review-hero

I had the opportunity to put the brand new HTC One mini 2 through its paces and when the phone arrived in the mail and I was surprised at how small the box was. I wondered if it was even the phone.

I couldn’t wait to open it and have a look at the phone – and my colleagues in the office waited with the same anticipation. They say the phone is a mini, but I did not find it to be that small; in fact, it is just a bit smaller than my Samsung Galaxy S4 and about the size of the Nokia Lumia 1020. Holding the phone for the first time, I was impressed with the feel of the phone in my hand. It’s balanced and feels nice to hold. I love the metal back and it gives the phone a real sense of quality.

Sharing is caring this World Mental Health Day

World-Mental-Health-Day-hero

In 2006, Telstra was the first corporate to have a mental health month – not just a day or a week – reflecting the fact that more than one in five of us at any time are living with depression, anxiety or have thought (terribly falsely) for a moment that taking their life was a reasonable solution.

Each year, as the organiser of the Mental Health Month activities, I have been stunned by the sheer courage of those who have shared their story, all in the spirit of helping those suffering know the hope that comes with correcting the chemical and emotional imbalances that underlie mental ill health.

If you are suffering, know that you are not alone. There is light in the darkness.

10 things to do before giving your kids a smartphone

Filed under: ,,

kid-with-smartphone-hero

Like many other Australians, our family is on the brink of being conscripted into the arms race of junior phone ownership.

As parents of three tech-savvy kidlets (even the two-year-old has the tablet mastered), there is no avoiding the necessary smartphone policy development within the Government of Laird. How do we ensure the powerful micro computer – which also happens to be a phone – enhances personal functionality, rather than staging a total coup?

Here are ten things based on experience that you might consider before giving your child a smartphone.
