Cogent Conversations: Intro
Introducing the Cogent Conversations podcast and what it’s all about.
Introducing Cogent Conversations
Yes, you heard correctly – we’ve launched a podcast! Why? At Cogent we get a pretty unique look inside a whole different bunch of digital organisations, which helps us deeply understand what goes into make these types of businesses work well.
We were pretty sure other people would like to hear about what we’ve learnt over the years, both from us and other people who are working in digital businesses around Melbourne. So was born the Cogent Conversations podcast.
In this short introduction, I go over what you can expect from the series ahead, and a glimpse of the kind of businesses I speak to.

Full Episode Transcript
Hey there, it’s Adam Murray here, and welcome to the Cogent Conversations Podcast. In this short recording, I want to tell you a little about what this podcast is all about, so you can work out if it’s a good fit for you. Through the work we do as a digital business and product consultancy we get a pretty unique look at how different digital organisations work. Having this kind of access enables us to understand deeply what goes into making these types of businesses thrive.
We were thinking about this, and were pretty sure that there’d be a bunch of other people who would like to hear about what we’ve learned. Both from us and from the other people who are working in these types of digital businesses around Melbourne. So we made a list of the types of people and organisations we see as examples. Businesses that are aligned with values with Cogent, are creating excellent things in the world, and are great places to work for the people who work there.
We asked them to join us for a conversation about getting a sneak peak at how they go about things. We got a great response from these kind of requests, and are wrapped to be talking with a range of excellent organisations, working in industries ranging from ethical news publishing, to construction tech, and about topics including: creating teams that flourish, using technology to promote community, and how we can all participate in bringing diversity to our organisations.
So that is what this podcast is all about. Sharing the stories of digital businesses that are thriving, learning what they make, and then how they make it. I hope you’ll enjoy listening. Thank you.
