This slide deck is from a 20-minute talk I gave to the Founders Institute launch this week.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3ho9B4VpS0] The other night I MC’d my first Business News event – their Rising Stars Awards.

A year ago I bought myself a nice new 4 cylinder petrol car with all the mod cons. I’ve driven 8,000 kms, which divided by the number of work days (it really only takes me to work and back, plus the odd meeting) is 32 kms a day. The average car commutes 55 kms a...

A good day today. I had some meetings out of the office with some inspiring people, and also some great meetings at work, where we discussed new projects and some innovative new ideas we are developing.
