unKEMPt Podcast Episode 8: Tim Walmsley on the future of work


Tim Walmsley, the founder and CEO of BenchOn, explains his vision for a world where no one loses their job for financial reasons.

It’s raw, it’s real, it’s unKEMPt – a podcast for founders, investors and entrepreneurs hosted by Queensland Chief Entrepreneur Leanne Kemp, the founder and CEO of Everledger.

This week, Leanne talks to BenchOn founder and CEO Tim Walmsley. A world-first platform created right here in Queensland, BenchOn allows businesses to earn extra revenue by loaning their staff to other businesses in need.

Walmsley explains how his role as an executive in the defence industry opened his eyes to the problem of employee underutilisation; how he came up with a platform to solve it; and what the future of work will look like in 2030.

Then, in this week’s Leannesplaining segment, Leanne talks about what happens when ‘culture eats strategy’, and why successful startups need to be in the business of culture creation.

UnKEMPt is hosted by Leanne Kemp and produced by the Office of the Queensland Chief Entrepreneur and The Content Division. Like what you hear?
