#4 – Maxine Sherrin, Program Director of Spark Festival
Maxine Sherrin is one of the most tireless champions of Australian innovation and entrepreneurship. In this episode, we hear about her journey and exciting future plans for Spark Festival. We ask her the big questions – what can founders do to create the right culture that withstands dilution as their startup scales, and what can we as members of the Australian tech community do today to encourage pro-innovation policies from the Government. Finally, we couldn’t help but ask her for a prediction about the Australian tech sector in these uncertain yet exciting times.
#3 - Attract, retain and motivate talent in a changed world
At the simplest level, a tech company is merely a collection of valuable intangibles and the people who created them – that’s it. Talent, alongside capital and revenue, dwarfs all other pain points for most founders. Besides communicating vision and purpose, how does a founder attract, retain and motivate employees?
In this episode, join William Buck director Jack Qi and Shane Duffy, CEO of outsourced HR experts Employment Innovations, as they discuss employee rewards and recognition strategies in a changed world. Tune in to hear about Shane’s top tips to motivate and retain employees and click here for additional tips on establishing an effective employee share scheme.

#2 - The Long Road to IPO: Signposts for Tech Companies
Having a tech company listed on a stock exchange was once a universally-accepted measure of its success. In recent years however, this notion has changed. The road to IPO is long and bumpy as seen from high-profile cases like WeWork and Guvera. This episode shares insights on whether a tech company should embark on the multi-year IPO journey in the first place, and what should be done today to make it a successful one.
In this episode, join William Buck directors Mark Calvetti and Jack Qi as they discuss what makes an IPO worth pursuing and the common traits of successful IPOs.
