Ben has written a superb book – Innovation in Australia – that I recommend we all read. It is thoroughly researched- full of interesting facts and trends. It is a wake-up call; with, sensible and doable solutions in his closing chapter Good on you Ben. A great achievement. And done with passion. Phil Ruthven, Chief […]

He has in simple terms named many of the challenges and problems with the Australian business culture.
We owe it to future generations of Australians to embrace the learnings from Ben’s book.
