Earlier this year, more than 100 entrepreneurs and business people from around Australia braved the cold and isolation for a ‘think tank’ in Antarctica.
James Tuckerman was one such entrepreneur embracing the once-in-a-life-time chance to talk to other leaders from a range of different backgrounds and industries.
He says it was the perfect setting to form business connections and appreciate what matters most in business and in life. We spoke with James for our April 2015 edition of Business Essentials. He explains the lessons he took from the journey.
Welcome to the second edition of Nick’s Notes, and thank you for your feedback on the first edition last month.
April Fool’s Day Confession
Being April Fool’s Day, I reflect on a time when I was a “fool” in business on the back of the interview with the Fair Work Ombudsman, Lynda McAlary-Smith. She advocates joining industry associations and Chambers of Commerce – I wish I’d been a “joiner” when I started a business 10 years ago.
Welcome Back Chris Ashmore
We recently welcomed back Chris Ashmore to the Business Essentials Media Production team after a break of 12 years that took him to Tokyo. I’m delighted to introduce him in his new role of Producer/Business Development Manager.
April Edition Of Business Essentials
The April edition of Business Essentials is online and in response to subscribers requesting more interviews with successful entrepreneurs – we’ve got three this month. From a think-tank in Antarctica attended by James Tuckerman, to ex-Olympic skier Peter Forras who now sells ski gear around the world, and a confession from Andrew Griffiths who tells his own story of falling into the trap of putting too many eggs in one basket. Plus many more interviews designed to help you grow your business.
I hope you find value in the interviews this month and I look forward to speaking to you next month.
