Brad Howarth is one of Australia’s best futurists and unique in what he does as he takes technology and makes it accessible to businesses immediately.


Join us for the next Latrobe Community Network Events lunch on Wednesday, 9 October with Brad Howarth at the Traralgon Vineyard. 

We know that change is inevitable, but how many of us can honestly say we are able to adjust to change when it happens? Rather than simply reacting to the changes happening around us, what if we could anticipate and plan for change before it happens?

Brad is passionate about change. As a writer, researcher and author he has been examining the impact of technology-driven change on business and society for 25 years, writing for local and international publications. His unique outlook on what it takes to be content in life is simple If change is not optional, then neither is foresight.

In this interactive presentation, Brad will take you through practical strategies for better understanding, envisioning and planning for change, with the goal of helping you design and shape your future in a rapidly changing world.

Cost is $45 per person and includes a two-course lunch, keynote address and networking.


Pre event registration and payment via https://www.trybooking.com/BFKYT  RSVP by Tuesday, 3 October.

Feel free to share with clients, colleges and friends, why not get a table (tables of 6-8).


Thank you to our sponsors TAFE Gippsland, Bank Australia, Latrobe City Council and GBS Recruitment. 



Driven by his underlying belief that if change is not optional then neither is foresight, Brad is an engaging and entertaining speaker.

He is a passionate advocate for the need to ensure that all members of society can share the benefits of digital technology, having served as Ambassador for the Broadband for the Bush Alliance and Champion for the National Year of Digital inclusion.

Brad has authored three books focusing on topics including start-ups and entrepreneurship and life in a high speed broadband society. His most recent, Managing for Change, was co-authored with Peter Fritz AM and provides a roadmap to help individuals better understand and plan for change in their personal and professional lives.

Brad believes that as more and more elements of society switch to digital technology it is vital that we do not create a society of digital ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’, but instead ensure everyone has access to digital services and the training to use them effectively.
