It was an absolute pleasure catching up with you. It’s always amazing when you reconnect with someone that you haven’t seen or talked to in years and you just kick it off with really meaningful topics.
What I found fascinating was our conversation around keeping one eye on the future at all times. What large organisations lack is this ability to create this vision that they’re supposed to have from within and that’s where you come in with you conceptual designs and framework thinking. But as much as it is enjoyable, what you really want is to see is the results, the actual implementation without all the politics. In a world full of process driven design, it’s hard to see where we can just make things more focussed, optimised and far less long winded but you’re on the journey to find out what that is. The one thing that you and I both know for sure is that whatever the future holds, we will always need that human touch and the roles we’re both taking on, ensure that is what we’re learning.
In the near future, you’re excited and open to where you might end up, whether that’s across town or on the other side of the world. You’ve never lost your heart for the world and want to be doing something that helps heal and sustain it. The most humbling thing is that you seem to really know the true value of things. You see yourself from the perspective of others and realise that we, as Australians and as individuals are really well off and are in the prime position to drive the change we wish to see, without the struggles that much of the people of the world has inherited.
JK, you’ve taught me a lot in this short time and it’s absolutely humbling to talk to you, I wish you all the best in your endeavours and support you along your journey.
