Learning to network with purpose

I had a call this week from Lynette Palmen at Women’s Network Australia.  Nothing unusual in itself… Lynette was phoning because a potential client had mentioned they had a relationship with sphinxx, and she was calling to for a reference.  Or is it unusual?   Lynette is what I’d call a master networker.  She lives the […]

Ever had a life-changing experience?

I think I had one on Thursday night, at the Women in Finance event in Sydney.  Guest speaker was Jessica Brown, founder of the Lifechanging Experiences Foundation and the Sister2Sister program. The Sister2Sister program is well known to some of you who are seasoned Big Sisters.  When I asked you earlier in the year for suggestions on a charity that sphinxx […]

Are you a Rapunzel or a Ladder-Kicker?

There’s a great divide emerging between two categories of working women.  Have you noticed it?  No, I’m not talking about the working mums versus the non-parents – though the working mums might like the world to think that.  Or the full-time-career-obsessed woman versus the flexibility-focused-have-a-life ladies who define their success by more than just the […]

sphinxx leaders in the firing line of Australia’s first Labor budget in 11 years

As Australia’s “Wealthy Families” – defined by Australia’s new government as those earning more than $150k – bear the brunt of last night’s budget announcements, sphinxx leaders could be forgiven for feeling disadvantaged for pursuing career advancement and promotion. If your family income exceeds $150k, you will be subject to tough means testing on the […]

Surely there’s more to networking (and business) than chocolate

What is it with this entire industry that’s emerged around networking events for women?  I reckon there’d be a networking event taking place at any given moment across Australia in any of the leading hotels, convention centres or sporting clubs, all selling the opportunity to connect with other business people.  And it seems about 80% […]

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.
