Supporting tech innovation as an enabler within Australian Healthcare & Government Sectors

We invite technology innovators to learn about our initiatives within these sectors that include:

Technology as an enabler in healthcare

Drive conversations in healthcare

We continue to gather a mix of forward thinkers from different skill sets and backgrounds together to have meaningful conversations on what needs to be done when it comes to leveraging technology for better patient outcomes. Last year we worked with our partner Queensland AI Hub to build a forum to discuss AI in Healthcare featuring Queensland University, Metro South Health, Harrison.ai and Deloitte. In 2022 we will continue to drive similar conversations with a variety of stakeholders.

A conduit between Healthcare stakeholders

We are currently engaging with a number of associations, government representatives, regulators, academia, healthtech and patient representatives to collaborate and navigate the complexity of the healthcare sector. Reach out to me to be part of it, 2022 will the year of ‘doers’.

Leverage research to propel better patient outcomes in Healthcare through tech

We will continue to undertake healthcare sector research on behalf of technology leaders to create insightful and educational content on how technology can be leveraged to deliver better patient outcomes. The results of such studies are distributed to our network of associations to reach the users of tech within healthcare settings.

Technology as an enabler in government

Grow diversity within NSW government’s tech supplier network.

Via #TechDiversty foundation we teamed up with Cultural Infusion and approached NSW Government to implement a data driven platform called Diversity Atlas across all strategic partners that provide technology services to the state Government, to understand tech workforce diversity. This is an excellent opportunity for our technology clients to align with a Government procurement process that puts diversity and inclusion as a priority. Reach out to me to find out more.

Data driven insights to help tech innovators sell and market to Government

Provide technology innovators with access to data insights that will enable better ‘matchmaking’ between tech innovation and Government request for tender (RFTs).  Organisations can throw a lot of resource at RFTs with little insights. These data insights help organisations to uncover partnerships for RFT success.  Our clients use this service for competitor insights and plan future resource allocation to submit upcoming RFTs.

Support and attract more talent to the tech sector

Continue to volunteer our time to lead not for profit #TechDiversity foundation, we recently secured a partnership with the Tech Council of Australia and their recently launched initiative; the Digital Employment Forum (DEF). We will support and educate their members so they can attract and retain a diverse and inclusive workforce.

We’ve advised some amazing women-led businesses from Sri-Lanka with the Export Council of Australia and from Canada to New Zealand with SheEO, where we participated in virtual trade events.

We are actively mentoring overseas organisations with setting up and growing their market presence in Australia as part of The International Growth Programme lead by our UK partner TechNation

TechDiversity Foundation appoints new management

The TechDiversity Foundation is thrilled to announce that event management agency, Best Case Scenario will take over the management of the TechDiversity Awards and operation of the TechDiversity Foundation.

The TechDiversity Team believe Luli and Best Case Scenario are the obvious choice – they are committed to diversity in the tech sector, possess an unwavering desire to make a difference and facilitate some of the largest tech events in the country.

After 5 years of running the #TechDiversity Awards we recognise greater full time effort is required to take the #TechDiversity Awards to a national stage and to truly celebrate our TechDiversity champions. We couldn’t imagine TechDiversity being in better hands.

“Diversity for the sake of diversity doesn’t work”

Luli Adeyemo, Managing Director of BCS views diversity as a by-product for businesses who put great effort into maximising business success. Luli comments, “Inclusive organisations do not view diversity as just policy, but acknowledge the core value it can bring to organisations – diversity for the sake of diversity doesn’t work. I am extremely excited and grateful that the TechDiversity team approached me to take over the operation of the TechDiversity Foundation and management of the TechDiversity Awards. It’s exhilarating to be part of something that showcases and celebrates the true business value that diversity and inclusivity brings to an organisation”.

“Luli’s passion for inclusivity in business comes from real life experiences. The Best Case Scenario team were appointed to make Government events digitally inclusive. Since then, Luli has been campaigning to make sure that diversity and inclusion is front and centre for organisations hosting events, resulting in a better delegate experience, increasing delegate attendance and creating a more inclusive event."

Deirdre Diamante, TechDiversity Co-Founder

It is because of these beliefs that the TechDiversity Foundation approached Luli at the beginning of 2020. Luli will continue the fantastic work of the TechDiversity founders and inspire tech-based organisations to implement long-lasting change around diversity, based on the examples set by others. The TechDiversity team and committee will also continue to have strategic input and act as an advisory to Luli and her team.

Luli wants to eliminate any thoughts that inclusivity and diversity is just a tick on an organisation’s corporate social responsibility policy and the TechDiversity Awards 2020 program will be built on the business value diversity and inclusion bring to an organisation.

To support our flagship event, we will be running a series of thought-provoking webinars throughout the year, providing our community and supporting organisations with access to relevant information and resources. This will provide participants the opportunity to engage with speakers, each other and organisations; the opportunity to align their brand and be seen as true leaders in this field.

“We all agreed at TechDiversity that Luli and her team were a perfect fit - they have supported other non-profit awards ceremonies such as the AIIA’s iAwards which celebrates technology innovation among Government, universities, students and corporates.”

Soozey Johnstone, TechDiversity Co-Founder

The first webinar in a series of 4 will tackle ” Why should diversity be top of your recovery strategy?” Smart leaders are currently looking very frankly at their future strategies and considering where their organisation is going to be in the new norm. The priority for leaders is identifying how innovation can spark new growth opportunities. Research supports that diverse companies are better able to win top talent, orient themselves well with their customers and improve decision making.

Fintech virtual market mission

London, UK & Melbourne, Australia, 2nd July 2020: Global expansion specialists Newfound today announced the first ever virtual fintech trade mission between the UK and the APAC region since the coronavirus shutdown. The mission aims to open export markets, create new jobs, and scale up opportunities for the fintech sector and the broader digital economy across both regions.

The virtual trade mission has won wide support across both public and private sector with launch partners including Best Case Scenario, FinTech Australia, FinTechNZ, Global Victoria, New South Wales Government, Stone and Chalk and Tech Nation.

“This is an exciting event that will showcase the ‘best of the best’ in the fintech industry across both regions, opening new markets and creating opportunity for expansion, growth and jobs as the global economy looks to recover from the devastating impact of the coronavirus.”

Claire Marriott, CEO of Newfound APAC

Newfound will launch the Market Missions programme with a free event on July 15th to be opened by the Lord Mayor of London William Russell. The launch will feature sessions from leading figures in fintech, who will talk about the challenges and opportunities for fintechs scaling to the UK and Australia in the COVID era.

This will be followed by a 2-week digital trade mission to Australia on September 7th and then a UK equivalent commencing on September 14th. The programme featuring 100+ in-market experts will attract high-growth fintech firms from the UK, EMEA and APAC regions.

The trade mission has gained strong support from the fintech sectors lead industry body, FinTech Australia, with CEO Rebecca Schot-Guppy applauding Newfound’s innovative approach in creating a program where UK fintechs can learn and realise the benefits of an Australian expansion, all without leaving home.

“Newfound’s programme works around the limitations of COVID-19, allowing us to keep growing the global renown of our ecosystem in a period where we are largely cut off from the rest of the world.”

Rebecca Schot-Guppy, CEO of FinTech Australia

With the Australian fintech sectors revenue predicted to exceed 4 billion in investment [1] prior to the coronavirus and with more than 50% of Australian fintechs looking to expand overseas, the timing of this world first trade mission could not be better, as Australia and the UK look to recuperate from the devastating economic impact of the coronavirus.

"It is time to help kickstart the world’s economies and Newfound’s Market Mission for fintechs is a significant step in that direction, as we bring these innovative fintech businesses together, who are ready to grow and expand their operations into new markets.”

Peter Gillingwater, Newfound UK’s CEO and Founder

The Newfound fintech trade mission comes on the heels of positive negotiations that are now underway to create a Free Trade Agreement between the UK, Australia and New Zealand, which Mr. Gillingwater says is creating great excitement across both regions.

“Trade deals between nations and trade missions such as these are key to global economic recovery, which must continue, even with closed physical borders,” Mr her said.

Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence 3rd Party Events

The Best Case Scenario event management team are delighted to be part of Microsoft’s goal of successfully demonstrating the practical use of AI today. Microsoft will demonstrate how they are taking an industry-leading approach to responsible and ethical AI. Our job is to ensure that they get the most out of their sponsorship presence at three AI 3rd party events.

The Planning

The team really enjoyed taking part in the journey of providing input for the build and visuals for Microsoft’s exhibitor stand, it is very innovative, creative and interactive with the aim of taking delegates from a general understanding of AI to getting hands on with their tools. Our expert events team started their event management support in Sydney  on September 10th at IoT Impact, a two-day learning campus for Australian business executives. The Best Case Scenario Event Management team will then work with Microsoft on the AI & Machine Learning Summit, September 11-13. It doesn’t stop there, the third event where Microsoft will demonstrate their leadership in AI is at AI Digital Summit Victoria (October 18th).

Delegates will experience their very own perfect juice powered by Microsoft Azure.  The delegate stands in front of a screen that has a webcam behind it, they are shown three images to evoke a reaction – the AI platform matches the attendee reaction to the images to a juice.

"It’s an event series like this that the team at Best Case Scenario excel at, their ability to move onto the next event seamlessly and get the most out of sponsorship investment through efficiencies and adaptability is of real benefit to our client's ROI".
