And with a burgeoning little tech started called HELLO, it meant that Danny had to find a way to make his start up work in Darwin first.

INSPIRATION

KEYNOTE: CLAIRE MARADANI. ACCIDENTALLY DIGITAL.

PRESENTED BY CLAIRE MARADANI, MANAGING DIRECTOR OF TREETI BUSINESS CONSULTING

No one is more surprised than Claire is at being the head of a high-performance, digital-led enterprise. Especially when she forgets her passwords.

Life has a funny way of leading you to places that you never, at face value, ever thought you’d end up. Like, being the Managing Director of a fast-paced digitally-led consulting firm. And given that Claire admits to being the leasty digital-capable person on-staff at Treeti Business Consulting, there are a lot of lessons she learned along the way that helped her to become the accidental digital leader she is in 2019.
