Please join me for lunch or dinner, or just a coffee, in Melbourne this month!

Well it’s been a while… but I’m finally back in Melbourne over the next couple of weeks speaking first on The Female Leadership Journey at CPA Australia networking luncheon next week, and the week after as well at the Executive Assistants Network conference.  I’d love to connect face to face with as many of my blog followers and friends as I can while I’m there… after all, it’s not much fun being in another city if you’ve got no-one to share it with!

If you were coming to mine, I’d be happy to have you over for one of my famous pasta networking dinner parties… but  knowing how busy you all are I won’t ask you to cook!  To make it easy, the girls in the office have set up a few breakfasts, coffees and dinners for you to choose from… all you need to do is pick the one that works best for you, click here to follow the links and your seat at the table is confirmed!

– Networking breakfast – Wed 9 Nov – Crown Promenade
– Coffee Catchup – Wed 9 Nov – Crown Promenade
– Networking dinner – Wed 16 Nov – Nobu Restaurant
– Coffee Catchup – Thurs 17 Nov – Grand Hyatt Melbourne

Please note there’s just a few seats at each of these – so I’ll have plenty of opportunity to hear all your news! – and the booking system will hide the events once they’re full.  So if you find you can’t book in on the links, just drop me a line and we’ll work something else out!

I also have some private 1:1 mentoring options available while I’m in Melbourne – if you’re interested or know someone who could do with some inspiration – click here for details or feel free to forward this message.

Hope to see you soon in Melbourne!

What are the lessons you’re teaching your kids? We took the opportunity of a holiday long weekend to visit my mum interstate as the timing of the trip coincided with my son’s favourite AFL team battling it out against my mum’s beloved team. Perhaps only those of you with the love for AFL will appreciate why we’d plan a long distance trip around a game of footy, but suffice to say it was a passion project! With every ounce of anticipation, the game was a tough, tight duel and could easily have gone either way. Yet when the final siren sounded, it wasn’t our team that was smiling. It sure is tough for a 10 year old boy to sit within a crowd 41,000+ people all cheering for the opposite side. It was tough for him to see the exhaustion and disappointment on the faces of the players he adores. And yet, it’s so important for him to learn that his team won’t always win. There’s so many lessons in that, but the one I chose to instil is that you won’t always back the team that wins but you’ll always back the team that you love. That’s why I asked him to wear his team colours home the next day, and show his support even when the chips are down. That’s the kind of commitment I want my son to learn and the kind of team player I want him to be. PS. #gotheGiants @GWSGiants #neversurrender ... See MoreSee Less

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.
