What men really want, and how they “have it all”

Are you following @manwhohasitall on twitter? I’ve concluded this satirical (and scarily familiar) account of “top tips for men juggling a successful career and fatherhood” could only be authored by a woman. The basis of my assumption? Career men wouldn’t think about spending time on social media sharing the ins and outs of their work […]

Wallowing this week in the colds and flu that descended on our little household, it’s been hard to stop thinking about Sheryl Sandberg and her family. The tragic and sudden death of Sheryl’s husband, Dave, last weekend, is unbelievable. I had the privilege and great joy to spend a morning with Sheryl at BlogHer a […]

The critical role of empathy in life, leadership, business and our community

For several reasons, I do my best to keep away from the news. Over the past week that’s been pretty difficult and no doubt you’ve experienced your own personal response to the MH17 disaster. We tend to hope these events are once in a lifetime; still that doesn’t make it any less distressing. My unhinging […]

To everything (turn turn turn) there is a season. What’s your season, right now?

This song, originally by Pete Seeger and made famous by The Byrds, says it all. If you were a fan of Forest Gump you’ll remember the Byrds version from the movie, but my favorite version for its simplicity and honesty (think Joni Mitchell) is this one by Judy Collins from 1966:   I know. It’s […]

Check this out, I'm in awe. My friend Ronni Kahn is at it again, disrupting the food supply chain, offering food security to the vulnerable. I've shared before about OzHarvest. When I first met Ronni ten years ago I knew she was special, but what she has achieved and continues to achieve truly blows my mind. She cares so much about the people that OzHarvest serves, and every person in her life, and gives her everything to make sure that no person needs to go hungry. The international expansion of OzHarvest is awesome, and this "take what you need" supermarket in Sydney is just brilliance. Repurposing and rehoming surplus food, keeping it out of landfill so that we all benefit and business overheads are lowered. Win. Win. Win. Love it! ... See MoreSee Less
