Why Clever don’t pay the bills (and Humanity is your point of difference).

Groupthink is everyone’s problem.

The dust from the surprise result of the Australian Federal election is settling. I think the coalition’s against-all-odds win is a case of voters picking the […]

Everyone’s got a plan until they get punched in the face.

If you were in any doubt, now is the time to get serious about building your influence and personal brand. The recent Royal Commission into the rip-off culture within Australia’s financial institutions has left a lot of reputations in tatters. It’s never been more important for professionals to create a personal brand that showcases their thinking, integrity and ability to solve problems that matter.
