Experimental and kinetic poetry is a great way to put a new spin on creativity. This movie was totally out of my comfort zone, but it was filmed for a good cause - to raise awareness around domestic violence. Statistics in Australia, reported by White Ribbon:
At Bankstown Poetry Slam in Bankstown, West Sydney - the largest poetry slam in Australia. Enriching to see such diverse and passionate poets rock the house. Feature poet was Luka Lesson who was literally amazing. I was last up in the slam and I have to say, it was a total privilege to take to the mic at an iconic event like this, performing a poem called 'Bleach' about high school bullying.

Every week brings something different in the job I do at Adecco. From leadership and team building, to strategy and planning, to client and candidate meetings, there is never a dull moment. On Tuesday, I had the privilege of hosting a stand at the career day held at my children’s high school. I talked about my day job as Managing Director at Adecco Australia and creating space in life to accommodate my out of hours passion for writing as a bestselling author. The enthusiasm of the students and the excellent questions they asked gave such a refreshing perspective on the work we do at Adecco in matching the right person to the right career every day. The Adecco Group is the world’s leading HR solutions partner. We provide over 700,000 people with permanent and flexible employment every day. It was a lovely afternoon spent feeling inspired by youths who want to make a difference in the world. If I inspired even one student to chase their dreams then it is a perfect week.
