Smartphones are meant to bend by Livvy

Bending SmartphonesYou’ve no doubt heard of the issues surrounding the newly released iPhone 6, but do you personally know of someone that it’s happened to? It may be corporate espionage but that’s another topic… For today, imagine a material 100 times stronger than steel – flexible, elastic, transparent, can conduct heat 10 times better than copper and produces electricity 100 times better than silicon. No, I’m not talking about something from a sci-fi movie; I’m talking about graphene and it’s been around for as long as Potentia – 10 years!

Standing out from the crowd by Livvy

Stand out I’ll start with a wee bit of a brag, please don’t get all tall poppy on me… I’ve just attended a conference in Singapore and at the end was the Global Recruitment Awards Ceremony for Asia Pacific. As a finalist in two categories, I thought we stood a pretty good chance to win at least one! Now, I love a good acceptance speech, so I practiced two different derivatives in the shower that morning. However, what happened on the evening really surprised me...

The Selfie by Livvy

Josh's SelfieWe all know Generation X (my lot), Generation Y/Millennials/Echo Generation (1980-2000, oddly unable to make up their name or mind), but what is the next generation called? I've heard Generation Z, the Next Generation, the Net Generation, but none have captured it for me until very recently. I now know exactly what to call them.

We're proud to help educate and inspire today's youth about future options in the ICT Industry. We recently upgraded our sponsorship of ICT-Connect to Premier status; one of only three top level sponsors. We believe this clearly demonstrates our commitment to the industry.
