Garry Williams has a natural enthusiasm for life, people, and having a go at something new. From a corporate career in tech he wanted to explore a curiosity that was growing in him about what was happening in the startup and tech communities of Melbourne. This led him to working at General Assembly, Inspire9, and together with a friend bringing people together through stories of hardship and learning at FuckUp Nights Melbourne.
He now works at the University of Melbourne where he is helping bridge the gap between academia and industry, and art and science.
Garry is a natural connector of people who I always value chatting with.
If you enjoyed listening to Garry you may also enjoy listening to Melina Chan on the journey of Inspire9, Will Dayble on alternative forms of education, or Nathan Loutit on helping academia and industry work together.
