Who Actually Walks The Talk – Go Figure

May 21, 2013 | admin

WNA Member, Tony Abbott gave us a glimmer of hope for the future in his reply to the Budget on Thursday night when he announced that on his watch small business will be a cabinet portfolio within the Treasury department. Under the current Government it’s been an uphill battle for small business issues to be given […]

Mobile Phones – Social Faux Pas

October 29, 2012 | admin

How do you feel about sharing a table or conversation with people who for whatever reason don’t seem to be able to disconnect themselves from their mobile devices? Call me a dinosaur if you want, but I find it really annoying!  I have even encountered situations where guests at the table have been sending text […]

International Women’s Day, a Cabbie’s View.

March 7, 2011 | admin

On my way back to the office in a taxi today I somehow ended up in a conversation with the cabbie about tomorrow being International Women’s day. Inevitably in my leadership role of a women’s organisation whenever I engage in conversation with men about IWD the question usually arises as to how relevant IWD is […]

June 8, 2009 | admin

Some days you just can’t help but think customer service is all but dead. This morning I encountered what could only be described as a comatose operator at a Woolies express checkout. I was doing my bit, on hearing the words “Next in line” I fronted up to the counter. On arrival I smiled and […]

April 21, 2009 | admin

Sitting in a doctor’s waiting room this week I got a wake-up call about how quickly everything electronic is breaking down the networking barriers as we once knew them. Let me set the scene.

Stimulus needs a re-think

February 9, 2009 | admin

How insignificant the economic woes of the Nation become when one considers the tragedy that’s unfolding in Victoria. Today you would be hard pressed to find anyone anywhere in the country complaining about their loss of employment or weeping over the hit they’ve taken on their investment or superannuation funds. It’s a sobering time for […]

Everything is Expanding at WNA

October 19, 2008 | admin

It seems ages since I have updated my blog – the reality is it has only been a week or so but it feels like a life time. I’ve had a whirlwind couple of weeks with the launch of WNA into both Hobart and Perth. I know you have missed me reporting in but I […]

Lessons from the Lion Cage

August 13, 2008 | admin

My daughter Maddison (11) astounds me with what she picks up on. Whilst in Melbourne recently we visited the Melbourne Zoo.  We had a great time,  it’s an amazing experience. But at one point we were standing beside a couple and their two children, a boy maybe 5 and his older sister around 6. Maddison was in her usual form, she had her eyes […]
