What is going on with these mysogynist company boards?

When I wrote on Monday about the appointment of Mark McInnes as CEO of Premier Investments your comments were loud and clear: not enough time in the sin bin for your liking. Reality is though, McInnes’ good fortune comes at the hands of an all male board who apparently rate financial performance over values (although we’ve seen from the DJ’s case […]

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
