Our Keynote Speakers

Electrify Everything

Saul Griffith – Inventor, Author and Scientist

The time has come to lead. As a small nation we have everything to win, and everything to lose. We should go first, and we should go fastest. We need to understand the machines we use, their energy needs, and how to transition them to ones that are fuelled by renewable energy.  Awarded a Macarthur Fellowship, the so-called ‘Genius Grant’, for inventions in the service of humanity, Saul is possibly the most controversial living Australian.

Unreliable Reliability

Lt. Col. David Wilbur US Marines Corps

Human error is inevitable and serves as a symptom of systemic failure. As with all symptoms, it becomes a signal spurring systemic change. Through this captivating case study of four US Marine F/A-18Ds and eight lives as they approach certain disaster, you will hear why human error is an invitation for leadership to investigate the dark, uncomfortable cultural issues that made the error seem like a good idea at the time.
