What's Going On?
Disruptive technology and other trends that are changing the world


Presented by Simon Corah

It has been a crazy 12 months! Disruptive forces are impacting every industry and sector. In this presentation, Simon will talk about what is going on around the world today, the big themes and how they are impacting different industries. He will then talk about the impact they will have over the next 3-5 years.

About Simon

Simon worked for the Saatchi brothers for 25 years from 1983 to 2007.

He started as a graduate trainee at Saatchi & Saatchi in London, then moved to Sydney after 5 years. He became MD of Taiwan (1991), then CEO Ireland (1992-95) and returned to Australia to found M&C Saatchi Australia in May 1995.

Over the next 12 years, he built M&C Saatchi into a top 3 Australian Agency, with a range of blue chip clients, 300 staff and $50million in revenues. Following the sale of M&C Saatchi on AIM on the UK stock exchange, Simon left in 2007, to start Growth Mantra.
