An entrepreneur who is passionate about the intersection of people, innovation and technology

Bruce McCabe is an entrepreneur working at the intersection of technology, innovation and business. Based in Sydney Australia, he is widely recognised for his pioneering research into organisational innovation and how new technologies are adopted and applied in practice.

He held senior roles at IBM, WordPerfect, Novell and Gartner before founding S2 Intelligence in 2002, a think-tank supporting organisational innovation through grounded research. In 2009 he started the Innovation Advisory practice at KPMG, with the objective of helping organisations create value through innovative new products, services and processes. He is currently assisting National ICT Australia, the nation’s computer science organisation, helping spin-off new commercial enterprises. He has authored more than 300 essays, columns and research papers. Over the past 16 years has supplied independent analysis to international companies and to various government agencies. He has acted as an advisor to the CSIRO and maintains relationships with a variety of universities, science organisations and commercial R&D labs.

Bruce is the author of The Future of Business (2007).  He has also been a weekly columnist for The Australian newspaper (2003-2006) and a monthly columnist for Managing Information Strategies (2002-2003), Business Online (2002) and Australian Personal Computer (1996-1999).  He is regularly interviewed for his views on radio, TV and the web. He is sought after as a speaker and has delivered over 400 public presentations in the United States, Europe, Japan, China, South-East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Through these presentations, he helps organisations to adopt and exploit new technologies for real business advantage.

His presentations help organisations to adopt and exploit new technologies for business advantage. His presentation "Technologies to Change the World" is a high energy journey through a selection of game-changing technologies which are set to transform the world over the next ten years. This inspires and educates audiences, leaving them with a strong sense of the opportunities that lie ahead. Which emerging technologies will come from the world of energy, bioengineering, genomics, nanotech, computing and sustainability? What global societal implications do these bring? How will many technologies transform business? Certainly they are poised to provoke and inspire us towards new thinking. This takes a look at the future, how we work and importantly how we engage with our customers. Bruce helps us to start a discussion on "what it takes" to build an innovative organisation, with a special focus on leadership.

Bruce gained a BSc from the University of Sydney, 1989 and his PhD from the University of Technology Sydney, 2007. He is a Research Fellow with the University of Technology Sydney (2007-present) and was a member of the Digital Advisory Group of the School of the Built Environment, UTS (2008-2009) and an Advisor for the Future Vision Group, Faculty of Information Systems, UTS (2007).
