08:45   – 09:00Registration 09:00   – 09:15Conference Summary 09:15   – 10:15Gig economy and socially responsible companies in the digital era! Speaker: Mobin Barati, Founder and CEO at Mobin Enterprise Topic Abstract – In the era of digital, gig economy business model is more popular than ever. Companies like Uber, Airbnb and AirTasker are some of the successful examples of this business model. But what if these enterprises were more socially responsible and their ultimate purpose was to enrich communities around the world by creating opportunities for community members who would like to make a decent living by participating in the shared economic activities. Such companies would reinvest the profits back into the community development rather than paying hefty dividends to their shareholders or invest in cutting-edge technology research and development to replace gig economy participants with intelligent machines. What if these digital businesses were more about people and less about capital. Bio – Mobin Barati is a serial entrepreneur and an accomplished IT and BPM Architecture professional with 20+ years of experience around major challenges that enterprises face when taking on change across the whole organisation. Mobin is a thought leader in human-centric digital transformation helping organisations design and deliver new futures for their customers, staff, partners and shareholders. Mobin’s experience in agriculture, education, hospitality, software, not-for-profit, government, banking and community services industries has given him an edge in dealing with different challenges from strategy and architecture to change delivery and operations. Mobin uses a human-centric framework for his bigger picture approach to help his clients deal with ongoing challenges to their business. 10:15  – 11:00Journey of Digital Transformation.Speaker: Charlie Chen, Digital Transformation Program Manager at OCS Services Australia Topic Abstract: The beginning of the Journey The objective of this project was to leverage digital technology capture and digitize the nonstructured information of cleaning services quality inspection to a structured data for Business Intelligent analysis and data mining. Our approach The transformation processes start with internal stakeholder’s engagement. The project manager studied all relevant documents (i.e. SOW, KPI and commercial/industrial cleaning services contracts.) The virtual project team has developed an innovated method to convert cleaning services requirement to web-based site inspection templates. The digital transformation project manager starts end users’ engagement with project planning meeting and tailored workshop/technical training. Site-specific pilot testing are conducted before the system go live. Using above streamlined approach, we have successfully completed the national rollout of this digital tool. Bio – Possess with Executive MBA degree, I am a passionate and dynamic leader, highly experienced technology executive, with over 26 years distinguished record achievement in providing leadership in many large and complex business environment with strong commercial acumen and track record in designing and delivering innovated digital transformation program in finance institutes, government departments and large/medium/small organizations.

I have advanced knowledge of business modelling, business transformation, strategic marketing, corporate governance and social responsibility and program/project budget management. My online articles of the above subjects has been viewed/downloaded over 3000 times globally. My digital transformation practices included: Instigate and lead technology and business transition and transformation program including planning and execution of a strategic review, technical and people transition Develop and maintain strong working relationships and effective communication with internal/external stakeholders in the articulation of business requirements, development of business solutions, preparation of specifications and formulation of work practice and change management requirements Develop a ‘people strategy’ to ensure retain a committed and motivated team. Executive MBA in Finance, Marketing and Talent Management (2015)University of Technology, Sydney-Business SchoolGraduate Certificate in Information Technology Management Program (2002)University of Technology, Sydney Volunteer Work – Event Photographer of Fine Music 102.5 FM since 2013 11:00 – 11:30Networking Tea/Coffee 11:30 – 12:15Transforming Digital Transformation – On the hunt for Watermelons Speaker: Nathan Jones, Principal and Owner at Improvability Solutions Topic Abstract – Digital Transformation has become one of the most common change activities in the corporate world. From the more prominent implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to the smaller changes to applications or information systems and structures it is rare to find someone not affected by a digital transformation activity on any day. As project managers, PMO’s, sponsors and executives the way we approach these projects has the greatest influence on whether the transformation is seen as good or bad not just at the end, but importantly along the way. The governance of Red/Green relies on us being brave enough to embrace the red early, and not create watermelons to hide those things we can and should look out for. Rather than simply another look at failed projects, this presentation will propose simple and practical changes to the way we manage our work, talk about and drive for success, and deal with problems along the way. We’ll take a more positive approach, with real examples of where these have worked, or would have been of benefit when we looked back and learned from our lessons. There are some fundamental aspects to Digital Transformation that, if we think of differently; if we look to change, if we transform the way we digitally transform, we can reduce stress, improve our rate of success and yield greater and more broad reaching benefits than we do today. From experience in several large ERP installations and countless other smaller digitally driven changes there are opportunities for us as to take a moment to pause and look at what we can learn from our experiences and transform for the better the way we transform. Bio – Nathan Jones started his career in industrial research and then progressed to the manufacturing industry. He found a particular interest in the improvement of processes and this took him into other fields including retail and investment banking, gas, water and electricity utilities and perhaps inevitably training and consulting to businesses small and large. In all of these arenas he discovered the common thread to creating improvements was to change the mindset of the people involved in order to make more effective use of the capability that they have. It was this approach that led to the establishment of his current endeavour, the company “Improvability”. Nathan has a degree in Materials Engineering, postgraduate qualifications in business, statistics and management, and has trained in various project, program, portfolio and change disciplines as well as process improvement areas such as Lean and Six Sigma. Nathan has worked across Australia, New Zealand, and the broader Asia Pacific in roles from professional engineering, project, PMO and process management up to regional director level. He has survived six ERP implementations to date in his 25 year career and enjoys the challenges, but more importantly the benefits that transformation brings. 12:15  – 13:00Building a Strategic Roadmap for Transformation Speaker: Doyle Buehler– CEO at Dept.Digital and Author of #Breakthrough: Unleash Your Remarkable Brand Value, Influence and Authority Topic Abstract- We often hear the expression, “transformation is all around us”, yet we mostly miss what this really means, and how it affects us and our business direction, and more importantly, what we can actually do about it.

Blockchain: Bringing the Transformation Home presented by the Austin Forum

Blockchain: Bringing the Transformation Home presented by the Austin Forum
Event on 2018-07-10 18:15:00
The Austin Forum on Technology & Society in partnership with Austin Public Library presents Blockchain: Bringing the Transformation Home with Jeremy Drzal, Block512 and Karen Kilroy, Kilroy Blockchain Tuesday, July 10, 2018 Austin Central Library – Event Center 710 W Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 787015:45 p.m. – Doors Open6:15 p.m. – Presentation, Q&A7:30 p.m. – Networking What is blockchain? Why has it emerged as a potentially disruptive solution for so many applications? How will it transform business, government, and society? How can/will Austin support, accelerate, and even lead this transformation? Blockchain is a technology that promises utterly secure transactions of all types. It is widely known as the foundation for bitcoin and now for many other digital currencies, or cryptocurrencies, but this is just one important application. Blockchain is a distributed computing technology founded on principles of security, transparency, and permanence, and has potential to increase usability and immutability of all kinds of records and peer-to-peer transactions, from health records to property ownership to distributed IoT applications and prevention/detection of contaminated or counterfeited physical goods—and more. It can accomplish such things while preventing unauthorized usage, corruption of information, and theft of assets. But, what exactly is it, and how does it provide simplicity, enable security, remove ‘middlemen,’ and ultimately promise a more transparent-but-secure, peer-to-peer method of transactions with permanent records? Come hear blockchain experts Tiana Laurence and Karen Kilroy explain all this and more, and learn how Austin can be a leader in the blockchain revolution. We welcome your participation! Please send us your questions, answers and prognostications in advance at info@austinforum.org. Admission to the Austin Forum is always free. The Austin Forum accepts donations of used cell phones and smart phones at all our events. All devices will have a factory reset and be set up as new by the team at Austin Pathways’ nationally-recognized “Unlocking the Connection” initiative, which will connect every public housing resident with a digital device, digital literacy training, and a free or very low-cost internet connection. Your donated phone can change lives and help close Austin's digital divide, thanks to Austin Pathways. Thanks to Austin Public Library for their partnership. And a special thanks to all our sponsors!

What is blockchain? How does it relate to bitcoin? How can blockchain tools be used to transform lives and empower people all over the world?  There's more to blockchain than Bitcoin! Real-life blockchain programs are being used today to transform lives around the world, enabling people to gain a new level of dignity and economic empowerment.  Blockchain is an utterly incorruptible 'truth ledger' of records that operates as an independent, permanent, and transparent database coexisting in multiple locations and shared by a community. This technology has the potential to be used for a wide variety of applications, such as recording land ownership documents, cryptographically secured health records, tamper-proof voting records, vehicle registries, and disbursing fraud-proof government benefits or digital identities for refugees lacking government documents. Blockchain banking services enable disadvantaged earners around the world to secure currency in a format that is easily transferable, but not easily stolen. Document security removes power from corrupt businesses and bureaucracies and prevents deeds and other documents from being stolen or altered without consent. From pottery makers and farmers in developing countries to Austin music teachers for children with autism, people are using blockchain technology to support themselves and provide critical services. Join these four experts to learn more about what blockchain is, and which tools and applications you can begin using today to empower yourself and change the lives of others.
