Digital connectivity is now of paramount importance to the economic development of regional Queensland, according to RDA Sunshine Coast CEO Russell Mason.
He told delegates that the rise of the knowledge worker or “anywhere worker” provided opportunities for regional Queensland to develop smart work hubs (also known as digital work hubs) to provide flexible work environments for workers.
Mr Mason said the presentation was well received, with several conference delegates interested in investigating digital work hubs in their own regions.
“The digital revolution is changing how we work, how we balance family, and how we respond to growing transportation and infrastructure demands.”
The conference, held from 28-31 October, was hosted by Economic Development Australia, the peak body for economic development practitioners.
