THIRTY YEARS AND THREE BUSINESSES LATER , I ’ M STILL IN THE GAME , ROLLING WITH IT AND LOOKING FORWARD TO TACKLING WHATEVER CHALLENGE COMES NEXT .
Dion Williams , CEO , Servicely
There ’ s a growing focus on automating as many of those mundane routine tasks as possible , so employees can be freed up to focus on the complex and challenging activities that enable them to feel more fulfilled at work .
How do you deal with stress and unwind outside the office ?
Living in Manly , Sydney , we ’ re not too far from the beach or the bush which is fortunate because I really enjoy the outdoors . I ’ m learning to surf – it ’ s proving way more difficult than I anticipated – and most weekends I ’ m out on the mountain bike .

If you could go back and change one career decision , what would it be ?
That ’ s hard to answer because I ’ m a big believer in not having regrets . In common with every other human being , I ’ ve made my share
