Wow, the world has changed — and it’s changing even more as we speak. Perhaps at some point in the near future, humans will live beyond Planet Earth. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Perhaps the technology of artificial intelligence (AI) will catch up with us, almost in stealth mode, helping us to solve more challenging problems, […]

Learning from the veterans in our workplace

Over the past 20 years, I have met and worked with some wonderful leaders who come from an armed forces background. On ANZAC day 2017 – an Australian/New Zealand holiday that honours  our soldiers and veterans – I was speaking with a colleague about how these leaders shape  our careers and leadership styles. These humble […]

For this post, I am sharing my space with Courtney Carr, a member of our new graduate program in Perth, Australia. Working with Courtney this year has given us confidence and courage to trust wholeheartedly in our next generation of DXC. Here, she writes about a topic near and dear to my heart: questioning the world […]

Career advice for soon-to-be graduates — and all of us, really

Making a difference and helping others is what we at DXC like to do. Many of our leaders help out with charities, mentor and coach others, both inside and outside the organisation. Others among us work with universities and schools to make a difference in diverse ways.

Have you ever waited until everyone else has gotten off the train to see who is left behind and last to get off? Well I have. If you’re pregnant, disabled, elderly, injured or you just like to take your time, you’ve probably realized this can be a wonderful thing to do. It makes you notice so much more. You can see the men […]

Places, perception, people and networks: What connects it all?

The world of social media is changing our sense of place, our perception of people and expanding the networks that connect us. At the beginning of February, I had more than 1,426 connections on Linkedin, 726 Twitter followers (small compared to the 6.6 million some people and bots have) and 23 blogs published in 2016 and 4 in 2017. Around 2,000 […]

What brings us together is our relationship with technology and a love for what we do: We love to help our clients transform and understand how technology can make a huge difference in their organisations. On International Women’s […]

How much would you pay a robot or AI to do your job?

The other day, while working with some awesome and inspiring people, we started thinking about some of the processes that would be done in the future by artificial intelligence or a robot. Thoughts are wonderful things that can take you in all kinds of directions, and my mind started racing to the question of wages, the “who, what, where, when and hows” of […]

Good enough is never good enough, right?

Good enough is never good enough, right? Have you ever drawn, rehearsed, practiced, written something 1,000 times, starting over again and again, wanting something so much that everything you do becomes “never good enough?” Never good enough is a philosophy that pushes us toward choosing the riskier more original idea, right? It also encourages us to never stop learning. […]

Que Sera Sera – Whatever will be, will be

“When I was just a little girl, I asked my mother what will I be? Will I be handsome? Will I be rich? Here’s what she said to me? Que Sera Sera. Whatever will be, will be. The future’s not ours to see, Que Sera Sera.” ~ Jay Livingston and Ray Evans When I was […]
