There was a load of chatter in 2016 about technology automation sweeping through the skilled, "white collar" workforce and removing millions of jobs. No longer just the worry for unskilled workers in assembly lines and warehouses…now the finance clerks, accountants and even doctors & lawyers were in the headlights of an oncoming Mack Truck moving at high speed (think broadband in Estonia).

I still remember these words of wisdom coming from the mouth of my then mentor & big boss running the AsiaPac unit of a global software company. His son was lacking aptitude in school and only able to focus on rugby & girls. Passing on his fatherly wisdom he said, "Well Greg, the world needs ditch diggers too." At the time I thought, what a great statement of Australian culture…find the right path for your children based on passion and skills…don't force them down your own path.
