Bachelor of Business (bean-counting) and school of hard knocks... mainly to the head!
25+ years experience, beginning in finance and then into general management for newspaper organisations (when we had daily newspapers... yeah, remember those!) Then across to CMM.
Job in simple terms:
Business development... so I hang out at coffee shops, pubs and golf courses' networking'.
But, I jest, my specialty is talking to clients about their business, customers, and objectives and then developing marketing strategies to get those customers through the door.
Best described by the tagline:
I have a few… Life's not all beer and skittles… and I'm a big Seinfeld fan, so I'm always spotting raccoons (code for always looking for new clients I can help)
From the era of:
MC Hammer not touching it and DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince shaking the room.
Would self-title a biopic:
Some days it feels like a toss-up between The Muppets and Jason Bourne.
I thought I was Australia's Greatest Fast Bowler with new cricket whites and spikes in my mid-40s.
Having fun while #alwaysworking
In a global game of hide-and-seek, would hideaway:

Easy… beer, wine & cheese on the back deck with my special lady
