Who is Paul Woods?

First of all – thank you for taking interest!

My name is Paul Woods, and I live in Brisbane, Australia

In 2010 I made the leap from an average employee… to an “Intrapreneur” with an idea/vision/dream that I wanted to commercialise.  And looking back, it was one of the best moves I ever made.

I can hear you saying… “What is an Intrapreneur?”  Well, the best way to think about it is an entrepreneur who still works for someone.  Running a startup within a larger “traditional business” brings its own challenges, which is half the reason I am sharing the lessons I have learned on this site.  There isn’t much written about intrapreneurship… it is a lot sexier to be an entrepreneur… but from my point of view a culture of intrapreneurship has the potential to transform an average or a good business, into a great business.

On the side, I am currently a part-time management research student at the QUT Business School, studying the impact of technology on the work / home interface.  So if you are interested in topics about work-life balance, work/home integration, telework, results oriented work environments and more… all topics that are at the heart of any intrapreneur who wants to design the way they work to increase their performance… then I am sure you will enjoy some of the content I post as I work towards publishing my thesis.

My influences?

Please get in touch if you have comments, critisicms, feedback etc.  Comment on this site, or follow me on twitter (@paulwoods).

Cheers,
Paul W
