2019 IdeaScale Open Nation Sydney Session 4 – Jim Cook & Viji Venkat

Over the past six years, the University of Sydney TechLab wheeled out nearly every trick in the book in order to drive innovation in the organization. But how can you innovate when your definition of “customer” keeps changing.

Jim Cook is the Innovation Lead at The University of Sydney’s Tech Lab – a futurist, technologist, disruptor and juggling expert (both literally and with multitasking!). He works with teams of technologists, academics and students at the University to encourage the implementation of technology into the classroom and the laboratory. In his current role as a thought leader in the University’s ICT division, Jim is passionate about enabling a more connected University and contribute to the way that education and research are underpinned by technology in Australia.

Viji Venkataramani is Manager of Digital Innovation & Strategy at ICT and is passionate about enabling and scaling better experiences in and outside the classroom. With 15+ years of roles in education, consulting, start-ups, IT, steel and heavy machinery, energy sector and social enterprises, Viji’s key objective is simplify and problem-solve, create/leverage opportunities complementing and elevating the human side of experiences with technology.
