Paul Wallbank is a writer and broadcaster committed to exploring how industries, businesses and communities adapt to the connected society and find opportunities in this changing world.
He will be guest speaker at the Pittwater Council/Pittwater Business Limited (PBL) breakfast seminar at Bayview Golf Club on June 29. Members and guests will hear how business has evolved over the last thirty years and learn what they can do to prepare them for the next decades of change.
“Paul is eminently credentialled to help us understand the issues facing small business in this technological age,” said PBL chairperson, Shayna Price. “His experience in the media and with start-up companies, government, small business and large enterprises, endows him with the expertise to provide a unique perspective and give practical advice about how to benefit and profit from the challenge of change.
“Having helped thousands of business and home technology users, he is an expert in deciphering the internet’s jargon and explains the opportunities and risks facing us in layman’s terms.”
As a broadcaster, Paul Wallbank has two regular monthly radio segments with a combined audience of more than one million listeners where he discusses technology and change on ABC Local Radio stations across Australia. He is also a frequent commentator on television, radio and in print media.
He has founded four businesses including PC Rescue which he built into a national IT support company and Netsmarts which helps small businesses understand and use local search and cloud computing tools.
Over the past two years, he has been working with the New South Wales state government to develop concepts to help build Sydney’s profile as a global centre in the digital economy. This work has resulted in the ‘Digital Sydney’ strategy which has received $2 million in initial government seed funding.
Paul Wallbank also has a regular computer column with the Australian Smart Company website and has written six books including the Australian Dummies Guides – for PCs, Internet and Laptops. His latest book, e-Business, will be released in July.
