Event Details

In the first event of the 'Uncomfortable Ideas for the Public Service' lunchtime speaker series of Innovation Month 2014, two senior guest speakers will discuss the topic 'Failure: Is it the dirty word that we can all learn from?'

Innovation inherently involves the risk of failing. How can we as a public service develop an innovative culture if we are not willing to talk about, recognise and learn from failures? Why is it such an 'uncomfortable idea'?

Doron Ben-Meir has extensive experience in the venture capital industry and commercialisation more generally. Over the past twenty years he has been involved in numerous venture capital organisations, and has been a founder or co-founder of six start-up companies, as well as an investor, investment manager, and/or advisor to several others. Mr Ben-Meir has extensive experience with innovation, commercialisation and technology across various industry sectors and currently works with the Australian Department of Industry.

Jane Treadwell has extensive experience in the public sector, with a number of senior leadership roles including CEO of the experimental APS initiative DesignGov, CIO for the Victorian Government, and Deputy CEO of Centrelink. Ms Treadwell has significant hands-on experience with innovation in the public service.

This event is kindly supported by NICTA's eGov Cluster.

Please note that the event will start at 12:00pm promptly, so it would be appreciated if you could arrive earlier so as to be seated in time.
