    In this final episode of Fearlessly Playful (in it's current incarnation, stay tuned for some big announcements coming in 2020!), I speak with Julie Trell, head of Telstra's startup accelerator program, muru-D and the Australian lead of SheEO, a radical new way to invest in women-led ventures. We talk about Julie's international journey beginning in the US and ending up in Sydney, including her role Vice President of All Things Fun, Meaningful & Rewarding at the Salesforce Foundation. We also talk about the power of improv, games and of course play and how to sneak them into very serious business settings to great results. And perhaps most inspiring for me is Julie's insight about the essence of play really being about curiosity, which I've now realised since this interview has actually been the driving force in my life... but I'll save that for a future episode.

    Lawrence Crumpton, Microsoft's Hololens and mixed reality evangelist

    In this special second last episode of Fearlessly Playful in its current form (big announcements coming soon!), I speak with Microsoft's HoloLens and mixed reality evangelist, Lawrence Crumpton. I caught up with Lawrence after his keynote at XR:WA (which is probably Australia's biggest immersive reality festival which I'm super proud to be one of the producers of) on the eve of the launch of the hotly anticipated Hololens 2. We talk all about the present and future of mixed and augmented reality and the power of play and games in creating that future, as well as being a critical part of Lawrence's work and life. We also discuss the legacy of Microsoft Bob, a ground breaking but too soon foray into new ways of interacting with machines and making computers more human. A fascinating conversation!

    Unsticking your Thinking with WA Real's Bryn Edwards

    Unsticking your Thinking with WA Real's Bryn Edwards

    In this week’s episode of Fearlessly Playful...well you've probably noticed there haven't been any new episodes lately! It's because I've been stuck. And when I get stuck it's usually a call for me to change what I'm doing, or stop doing something.
    I know I didn't want to stop doing my podcast, so I needed to dig a bit deeper to figure out what I needed to do to get unstuck. And what a great topic for a podcast episode!
    And so who better to talk to that my friend, podcast coach and host of the WA Real podcast, Bryn Edwards (Australia/UK). It was a fabulous conversation not just about the things that we let hold us back, but also the meaning, purpose and power of play. We also talked about our own journeys as podcasters and why its become such a popular medium thanks to its potential for authentic and vulnerable conversations.

    Marcus Holmes, the Nomadic Gentleman Technologist

    In this week’s episode, I talk to Marcus Holmes (Australia/UK/the World), gentleman technologist, digital nomad and former CEO of the Phnom Phen Post in Cambodia. Marcus shares how his playful disposition got him out of depression and into a life he loves. He shares how a playful approach has enabled him to keep  learning and growing beyond his comfort zone, which he says is key to staying happy especially as we get older. And of course being playful and taking risks is how he found himself saying yes to a role as head of a major newspaper, without any previous experience as a publisher or CEO. Then, when everything went really, really pear shaped, it was two skills from playing games that saw Marcus through to the other side: non attachment and being in the flow.
