News, insight and events
from Mitchellake Executive.

Ok...huddle in, I want to share with you some trade secrets that have been gleaned for close to 16 years in the dark art of recruitment...

Mike Cannon-Brookes recently pointed out in an article in Business Insider Australia that by not looking to the future, Australia is missing an unprecedented opportunity in our present. Over the past two decades MitchelLake has been immersed in what we see as a historically significant transformation of how we communicate, consume, work, learn and play.

The overcast skies didn’t dampen the event - or the view - for our most recent event, an intimate lunch for CEOs and founders to discuss fundraising alternatives for tech companies. Held in Norton Rose’s finest boardrooms – complete with sweeping views across Sydney Harbour – the event was a collaboration between myself, Nick Abrahams - Legal Futurist, Tech and M&A Lawyer at Norton Rose, Jason Georgatos – Partner at Partners for Growth (PFG), Stuart Foster – CEO Foster Stockbroking and Phil Alexander – Director at Overture Capital.

Last month Tech In Asia held their biggest, and many said best, annual conference in Singapore. In the event’s 4-year history it was my first time attending. It started with 800 participants but has grown to over 2000 delegates, reconfirming the startup growth we are experiencing in the region. Showcasing over 200 startups in 2 days, I began the conference in a super long queue just to collect my entry badge, and with the coffee line equally as long I prepared for a busy couple of days!
