So I am completing this newsletter at Melbourne Tullamarine Airport, waiting to board the return flight to the UK, after 3 and half amazing weeks Down Under. What can I say - other than THANK YOU for all the Aussies who showed up to Talent Palooza in Melbourne, Recruiting Trends events in Sydney and Brisbane and in all the places in between.
It has been a long time since I have been on a trip like this and it reminds me of the how important it is to connect with people in person even more so now we have decisively shifted to a digital first age. Especial thanks due to Andrea Kirby for the hospitality, care and invitation to fly out in the first place, Liz van Zyl for being the absolute babe that she is and sorting out the incredible mid trip Easter break in Manly, Karin Bowness for arranging the Sydney and Brisbane events, Jo McCatty for the send off cookies, David Macciocca for the lift to the airport and last and most certainly not least, Bas van de Haterd for being an awesome traveling companion, friend and Rum drinking partner for the entirety of the trip. Cheers!
I’ll be back to Oz, maybe sooner than maybe you think. Always available on DM on twitter
if want to talk about how to do it…
Have a great week everybody.
