Over the past two months Pedestrian has traveled our great southern land with Microsoft to present a series of live Future Sessions inspired by Windows 8. As we sought to ‘edu-tain’ you with the launch of Pedestrian Coach, what better way to do it than hit Australia’s Universities with panel discussions and interactive Q&As to squeeze knowledge from our country’s best and brightest business folk Each of the eight Future Sessions took place within Microsoft Tech Lounges at Uni campuses nationwide, inviting students and every keen Tom, Dick and Harriet to join the free and intimate events for some serious brain growth. Now, we bring the full sessions to those of you who missed out.
Presumably people in business don’t want to hire no bumbling idiot, and rattling off skills and attributes in an orderly verbal list is more fitting to the title of ‘robot’ than ‘entrepreneur w/ a strong vision’.
