November 9, 2011
tags: ,

Australia’s natural resources and mining industries face an uncertain future. A future clouded in the short term by the haze of new taxation regimes, increasing restrictions on new development approvals, and an accelerating pace of growth which other parts of the country and the economy are struggling to match.

I Might Be Good at the One Thing Everyone Else Hates

February 14, 2011

It’s often said that people fear public speaking more than they fear death.  And hence Jerry Seinfeld’s line about people preferring to be in the coffin at a funeral than delivering the eulogy.

Me?  I love public speaking.  I’ll take any chance to jump in front of people and present.  At work, at sports clubs, in training sessions.  Planned or impromptu I don’t mind (in fact I like impromtu the best because I kind of don’t like preparing…). Read more…
