How Business Really Works: The Business of Science & The Science of Business with Larry Marshall

Can a CEO be a scientist? Can a scientist be a CEO? Have you ever wondered what science knows about business? What do they contribute? A lot more than you are probably aware of! Joining us on our How Business Really works is Dr Larry Marshall, Chief Executive, CSIRO. Dr Larry Marshall is Chief Executive of CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency and innovation catalyst. For almost a century, CSIRO has translated excellent science into profound impact for the benefit of all Australians and the world. This impact has come in the form of WiFi, plastic banknotes, extended wear contact lenses and Aerogard insect repellent, just to name a few.

CSIRO and Cam McEvoy: a stroke of genius

What do CSIRO and Olympic swimmer Cam McEvoy have in common? A love of science of course! That's why we’re really excited to announce that Cam ‘The Professor’ McEvoy is going to be hanging out with us over the next year as our first ever ambassador. You could even say he’s our… Cambassador.
