Jodie Fox

I am a banking and finance lawyer by trade who explored the world of advertising before starting my own businesses. I've almost always followed my heart. I've never made a decision purely based on money - Instead I am driven by the desire to live a full life of doing what moves me. My passions that have span a number of topics that I love sharing stories on, including: 

  • Technology and how to use it to optimise disruption
  • Retail: clicks to bricks, multichannel retailing, the future of retail
  • The personal journey of an entrepreneur: The truth as nobody tells it
  • How to deal with "failure" and how to properly assess the possibility of failure so it doesn't become a barrier to taking a step forward. 
  • Stopping expertise from getting in the way of a good idea
  • Innovation: What it is, how to foster it
  • Agile: Why you have to do everything before you are ready
  • How to make the change from a traditional career to your dream career
