Jack hits the road to busi­ness suc­cess

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

JACK Wil­liamson has his sights set on be­ing a busi­ness leader.

The Como res­i­dent and Curtin Busi­ness School stu­dent is trav­el­ling to Nor­way to con­tinue his stud­ies.

He will learn more about en­trepreneur­ship on the world stage as an ex­change stu­dent at BI Nor­we­gian Busi­ness School from Au­gust to De­cem­ber.

“I’m look­ing at au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles as part of my hon­ours project and I’ll be look­ing to start my own busi­ness when I’m over there,” he said.

“I want to con­tinue my stud­ies at Stan­ford next year and then even­tu­ally go to Ox­ford be­fore I be­come a busi­ness leader.

“When I’m over there I’ll be do­ing lots of hik­ing be­cause I’m go­ing to Mount Ever­est base camp at the end of the year.”

Mr Wil­liamson is the in­au­gu­ral win­ner of a schol­ar­ship from Mel­bourne tech com­pany Ento.

He re­ceived $1000 to­wards his stud­ies and will be given in­di­vid­ual men­tor­ship with com­pany founder Au­lay Macau­lay.

As part of his nom­i­na­tion for the schol­ar­ship, Jack wrote an es­say on the role of tech­nol­ogy in hu­man re­sources.

“My piece was about in­te­grat­ing tech­nol­ogy into work­force man­age­ment and how au­to­ma­tion d469690 can be good for track­ing projects and up­skilling em­ploy­ees,” he said.

“To get ac­cess to Au­lay will mean that I can get in­sights into his pas­sion, how he mit­i­gated risks and took op­por­tu­ni­ties to found the com­pany.”
