The morning comprised of twenty minute presentations from each of the 8 excellent presenters, skillfully welcomed and thanked by MC, Glenn Capelli. Among the speakers was Rachael Robertson who I was familiar with from her humourous and inspiring closing keynote…See More

Mothers, families, work and role sharing: what I have learned

A very significant event for my family occurred on Christmas Eve. My wife, Michelle was offered, and she accepted, the position of Head of HR at her current employer of six years, Hallmark Cards Australia. I was thrilled for her as I know how hard she has worked to build her corporate HR skills after ten years in agency recruitment.

A view that is rarely countered with the opposing voice, the voice of reality, saying 'Yeah, but you also hired Brad, Sarah and Steve and they were all duds'. If the person…See More
