It’s all happening.
That’s right, Commswork is launching a new podcast.
We look to get behind the jargon and buzzwords of an industry and every week we invite a guest to guide us through their field.
Kicking us off is Mark Gustowski. We headed to the Brisbane offices of QUT’s Creative Enterprise Australia CEO for episode one. We discuss Mark’s two decades of startup experience, including his time in the Melbourne scene during the Dot Com boom and London after the 2012 Olympics announcement.
