Episode 29 – Paul Hodgson discusses NERA and how to bring the digital generation to baby boomer industries
Innovation is ideas + discipline. Paul Hodgson tests out the acoustics in our new HQ and discusses how industry growth centres like NERA support Australian companies in utilising their innovation to scale globally.
Australia exports more than 2/3 of its energy production currently as coal, oil and gas, and uranium. The challenge we have is exporting the knowledge that Australian companies develop, instead of just commodities. Paul is an expert on all things innovation and is dedicated to aiding start-ups and scaleups overcome all forms of challenges.
