I am a 35 year IT Manager working in the finance industry. I am formally trained in computer science, and I am currently studying a Master of Business Administration at Adelaide University, South Australia.
In addition to studying the MBA, I recently completed an online version of Stanford University’s Technology Entrepreneurship course. It was amazing and I found it paired very well with MBA theory. Thank you Chuck Eesley & venture-lab.org.
I think big business should look to merge traditional business theory with the more modern mantras from the start-up world.
I have a lovely wife, Eve, who encourages (and has patience for) my late nights spent studying or working. We have two boys – Archer (5) & Oren (2.5).

Thanks for visiting and please, let me know what you think,
Maybe need to set up a captcha for comments man, even with you approving them before publishing you may get some bot just spam your site with ads and crap that you then have to decline!
Ahh – allows comments without approval – definite target for spam
Hey Tim thanks for the comments. The current system requires I approve the first comment, and then after that you can go crazy. Yeah, a captcha style checker would help prevent its misuse… We’ll see how it goes!
That’s not so bad then mate – nice clean looking site btw – perhaps a suggestion to show x number of lines of each post with a read more otherwise a lot of scrolling can be involved with just one post
I wouldn’t allow me to post comments XD
Hi Tim, thanks this has been implemented
Nice to read your profile Andy.
Why don’t you come to the MBA networking breakfasts and meet other “pro-active” MBAs from Adelaide Uni. Cullen Habe comes from time to time. Other lectures as well come along. Very informal. Sometimes we have an interesting guest speaker on a topic of relevance to MBAs.
First Wednesday of every month, 7.30am start. East Terrace Continental (just behind the Botanic Hotel) Easy parking.
Thanks for the invite, I’ve put the next one in on my Calendar. I’ll email you when it gets closer.
