Brad Howarth is a researcher and consultant with more than 20 years’ experience in the field of digital transformation.

As a journalist he has written about technology-driven change for BRW and The Australian, and today works with organisations of all sizes to help them understand and plan for change.

Brad is passionate about the role that digital technologies will play in Australia’s future and the need to improve digital awareness and skills across Australian communities and businesses, and has spoken on this topic at numerous forums across Australia.

He has authored three books, the latest of which, Managing for Change (co-authored with Peter Fritz AM) seeks to provide people with a framework for proactively managing change in their lives and using change to improve their lives. His previous book, A Faster Future (co-authored with Janelle Ledwidge) investigated the impact of broadband-related technologies on individuals and businesses. Brad firmly believes that Australia’s long term prosperity is tied to the ability for all Australians to use the digital tools that are available to us to build stronger businesses and communities.
