Inbal Rodnay is a recognised leader in innovation with a focus on the practical application of AI in professional services, and how it will change the type of work we do and how we interact with technology.
Inbal has had a hands-on approach to technology since her first job out of uni, working on an airbase as a programmer on targeting software for fighter jets. Her experience working with technology in the military gave her a practical and structured understanding of how to best apply it in business.
Inbal ran a consultancy in New Zealand implementing enterprise accounting and finance systems before moving to Australia in 2011 and helping thousands of businesses move from desktop to cloud-based accounting software.
From 2021 to 2023, Inbal was Head of Technology and Innovation at BlueRock, a 350-person legal and accounting firm in Melbourne, where she led several automation projects in robotic process automation using the Microsoft stack.
This year Inbal founded Theory and Motion, a consultancy advising firms on how to become savvy adopters of technology. She specialises in understanding how generative AI will impact the roles of professionals in the accounting, legal and other knowledge-based professions, and how the nature of professional advice will evolve in response.
Inbal is a company director and member of the Australian Institiute of Company Directors, and excels at explaining the opportunities and risks of AI from a board perspective.
Inbal is an inspirational and dynamic speaker. She breaks down technical topics into practical examples that are highly relatable to a professional audience. Inbal's point of difference is that she understands technology from three perspectives; as a board director, a practitioner, and a programmer.
Inbal is a versatile speaker and facilitator who runs large-scale innovation workshops as well as highly engaging and entertaining presentations.
