[tweetmeme source=”ChazGunningham” only_single=false]Just watched the highlights of the incredible last day of the Ryder Cup. In an unprecedented manner, Europe came from 4 points behind from the first two days play to snatch victory by one point, 14.5 to 13.5. In its 85 year history, the US had never lost from a 2-point final day...

[tweetmeme source=”ChazGunningham” only_single=false]Last year I attended Perth’s first ever ‘RE BarCamp‘, which is a novel way for real estate people to learn more about their craft from from others working in their industry. It is novel in many ways: – it works best if attendees actively share their experiences and are willing to (potentially) give...

[tweetmeme source=”ChazGunningham” only_single=false]You may already know, dear reader, that I have been smitten by the bug that is golf, yet my golf has never been all that great. I still spend most Sunday afternoons traversing the opposite fairway roughs of ‘Royal Wembley’ golf course as I zigzag my way twixt tee to green. They say...

This weekend I have spent hours with some inspirational ‘can do’ guys and gals and came away awe-inspired. From 100 attendees on Friday night came 45 one-minute pitches and then over the next 2 days 14 teams were formed that worked flat out. The team I ‘mentored’ this afternoon (I did nothing, they were very...

[tweetmeme source=”ChazGunningham” only_single=false]Despite the lofty title, dear reader, this post is nothing about “the environment”, but is in fact about the environment. Sorry, a puzzling beginning, I grant you, but stick with me. One of the best things I read on the MBA program, all those years ago, was Amir Bhide’s ‘Bootstrap Finance‘ paper, which...

[tweetmeme source=”ChazGunningham” only_single=false] Think back to the many Olympics opening ceremonies of yore, rows upon countless rows of multi coloured gymnasts or drum beaters metronomically organised. Hours of precision boredom, oh yes, all very good, but where’s the soul, where’s the heart? The coup de grace came in Beijing 2008 where a cute girl was...

You won the exact same number of games that the Yankees won, but the Yankees spent one point four million per win and you paid two hundred and sixty thousand. I know you’ve taken it in the teeth out there, but the first guy through the wall always gets bloody, always. It’s the threat of...

[tweetmeme source=”ChazGunningham” only_single=false] A young girl asked her Mum “what’s 5 and 5 Mum?”, to which the Mum replied “Why don’t you tell me darling?” to which the daughter said, “It’s a butterfly!”. Her Mum looked at her quizzically and replied “How so?”. The little girl held her hands up together and made a butterfly...
