For an ICT Industry to thrive and survive in this globalised world, technology development and innovation should not be only limited to software. A whole ecosystem is essential, from software, hardware, to manufacturing. The talk will encompass exemplars of technologies that Bruce is working on, but also the wider context of the ICT technologies and ecosystem that exists in the Waikato.

Bruce has been commercially involved in technology innovation since 1995 and his desire to think outside the box and overcome the impossible provides endless motivation.
