Everytime I enter  a meeting where someone says ‘a good meeting is a short meeting’, I know I am in for a long one. Short form blogging is twitter, and facebook updates and basically very short, txt message like posting. It takes  a certain skill to keep things short, but with so much faff around...

Many moons ago in a former job on a different continent I remember seeing a circus performer give an electrifying ad lib performance to a school assembly, involving several of the students there assembled. During the mayhem, he looked up and said “if any of yers see a job for a company that talks about...

It’s difficult being interviewed, but oh so much harder doing the interviewing. I’ve done a bit of both (but more interviewing than being interviewed), and the interview is an odd environment when you come to think about it. Somehow, over a 20-30 minute conversation back and forth with the interviewee you are ascertaining whether this...

Gong Xi Fa Cai (Happy New Chinese New Year)! Yes, it’s that time again in our household, the place is spotless, inside and out, and chinese red packets hang from every garden tree or bush. The kids are excited about it, wife and mother in law are cooking up a storm, and I’m looking forward...

That’s the fun bit for me. Coming up with new ideas, fashioning them, bouncing them off others, shaping them further...

Just finished watching a brilliant T20 game, Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers, which Sydney won by the closest margin possible, 1 run . Amazing, nail-biting, edge of your seat stuff. As it turned out, Perth actually needed 168 to guarantee top spot on the ladder, and a home final in 1st position this Saturday at...

I’ve just completed the Steve Jobs biography – what a read. I could hardly put it down. Amazing, inspiring, fascinating, a warts and all bio of genius with a flawed personality. I would have hated to have worked with him, but then loved it at the same time. I bet many people got it as...

I like clouds – they are amazing things. I can stare at them for hours, lying on my back in a field or out the window of a plane flying through and above them. White and fluffy, and making all our weather work. * insert Day Dream sequence here! * Few hours later… a chance conversation  with...

Down at the cricket ground this weekend I bumped into John Inverarity, who is now Chairman of Selectors to the national cricket team. I was luck to get to know John in a variety of past organisations, and he is one of the most humble, decent and brilliant leaders you will ever come across. Many...
