What are you afraid of? Success? Failure? Judgement?
When I was young, sub-25 years of age, I never had an opportunity to go to a conference that had a line up of speakers quite like that of the North Queensland Entrepreneurs Conference. In fact, I really didn't know it existed. Well, it doesn't and certainly a lineup as inspiring as the one put together for Townsville on 8 November 2016, has not been done before.
The speakers at North Queensland Entrepreneurs Conference all started with an idea
In the 17 years of being in business, I have screwed up an awful lot. Sometimes I learned my lessons, others I was taught a few more times before I actually got it.
The adrenaline of organising one of the best business conferences in Townsville is exhilarating
I cannot say that I am not nervous about the upcoming North Queensland Entrepreneurs Conference. Of course I am! It's going to be awesome. Without sounding Trump-ish, "Let's make North Queensland Great Again".
The future is where your entrepreneurial heart lies
I've been in the Netherlands for 4 days and I am mesmerized, as always, with its sheer beauty. From harbour views through to fields of everything imaginable, you watch from the side a sustainable country go about its day on bikes, without seamingly a care in the world.
The Toren – the perfect jet lag haven in Amsterdam
Arriving in to Amsterdam at 7am is a hard slog, even if you are flying at the front of the plane. One of the worse times to arrive after a 22 hour flight, as it is inevitable, lasting the day or at the very least, until your room is ready is almost impossible – even for the seasoned traveller.

I had heard about The Toren Amsterdam, a luxury, boutique hotel in the centre of Amsterdam on the famous Keizersgracht canal. When their tag line says “designed to charm” they were very serious on making sure that every visitor feels extra special. I was no different.
The 'why' in everything we do
As a child, no-one asked 'why' more than me. I was so annoying to everyone around me because I was curious and I wanted to know 'why' things were done the way they were, or why mother nature did what it did.

That has followed me mercilessly through life, and I say it like that because without doubt, it has gotten me into some trouble or at the very least, ruffled a few feathers.
There's an art to PR and events - and few have refined it
Helen Reizer has been a friend for a good part of the past 10 years or so. She has always been the person who manages the big events in Melbourne and sometimes other parts of the world. Her events are perfectly organised, and a celebrity-full with a bunch of the who's who walking around sipping french champagne and canapes.
Entrepreneurship has no boundaries – just a code of ethics that one must follow
Growing up in rural township, Charters Towers, has its positives and negatives. Firstly, with so much time on your hands, you really do have time to think, and dream.

The negatives, believe it or not, I forgot. But my journey back as an adult, the ‘small town syndrome’ hit me firmly straight in the face, knocked me back a few steps and as I was about to trip, I somehow found my feet and continued.
Sydney team is looking for a leader, innovator and exceptional marketer
Marketing Eye has an exceptional team of people that work hard to be the 'best of the best'. Each have their own mandate and story to share, but mostly they are people who are paving their way in marketing, design, web and innovation showcasing their talent for the world to see.
What we can all learn from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
They whisked into our lives 12 years ago as a couple, and ever since there has been a good percentage of the population that has been absorbed in their every move. We know this because if they are on the cover of a magazine, it sells out.
Why entrepreneurs sometimes do a business plan then hope for the best
We are nearing the last quarter of the year, and many of us who have done our yearly business and marketing plans have done exactly what we should not have. That is distribute to the key players, then forget about it.
Artificial Intelligence hits Salesforce platform - but what does that actually mean to your business?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is more than a buzzword and over the past couple of years, Salesforce, has been embarking on its next play in adding features to build a smarter, more intuitive solution.
No risk, no reward - innovation is critical, not an option
Challenges that we face today, are the making of us tomorrow. How we cope under extreme pressure and instability, really acts only as an indicator of how well we can weather a storm. 

No business in the world has smooth sailing every day. It may look like some do, but they don't - I can assure you of that.

I am in a privileged position these days, as I work 'on' the business and not 'in' the business. I have changed from being a business owner from 25 years of age to 30, then an entrepreneur from 30 to 41 years of age, and now I am definitely an innovator. Our direction is ahead of the curve, and at the forefront of marketing globally. We don't look at our own backyard as our competitive landscape, but instead a global market that continually changes and with that, we need to adapt and forge ahead with new ways in which to do business.
From Robots and Virtual Reality, what is in store for your business in the future?
Never be afraid to accept an invitation, to connect with someone you don't know and to accept help when you need it.
Overnight successes is few and far between
Yesterday was the 8 September 2016. It was a day that I will remember for a very long time.

As an entrepreneur, I work really hard to ensure that my business meets its goals and provides a rewarding workplace for the employees who tirelessly work to ensure that our clients receive an exceptional service.

It's taken 10 years plus to be successful to a point that I can actually look at the company and see that as a team we have achieved something that is unique.
