Podcast – This connected life

The importance of rest

In my last solo episode, I spoke about the importance of sleep. Today I want to talk about rest. Our brains thrive when they have time to rest. We make over 30,000 decisions a day, so the cognitive load on our mind is immense. If we don’t take some time during the day...

Live your magnificent life with Lisa O’Neill

The importance of sleep

It's seriously hard to feel like connecting with people if you're tired! Let's face it, the only thing I want to be connecting with when I'm sleep deprived is my pillow. This week's episode is about the importance of sleep. Ironically, the week I recorded this I...

Financial fitness with Lara Bourguignon, CEO SuperConcepts

I first heard of Lara Bourguignon when we received an email she sent to all SuperConcepts clients, introducing herself as the new CEO, and inviting us to get in touch via her direct email if we had any concerns or otherwise. I was incredibly impressed so reached out...

Connecting through kindness

I’ve been thinking a lot about kindness lately. And how a small, kind gesture can make such a mammoth difference to someone’s life. Most of us are kind to our family and friends - what do we need to do to be more kind at work? Being kind is one of easiest things we...

Connecting with food with Dani Valent (episode 19)

I think I first "met" Dani Valent on Twitter about ten years ago, around the time I first bought a Thermomix. #bestkitchengadgetever Since then we have become firm friends. As she lives in Melbourne and I'm in Brisbane, we don't have a lot of opportunities to hang...

Marketing to women (episode 18)

A lot of people don’t realise women are responsible for 90% of consumer purchases. Which equates to over $20 TRILLION in global spending. In Australia, women own just over one-third of all businesses, and this number is rising. Australian women are also becoming more...

Connecting with your health (episode 16)

I recorded this episode about an hour after having my biannual mammogram and ultrasound, and it prompted me to have a chat about looking after our health. A big part of being connected with self is knowing what’s going on with our bodies and looking after ourselves...

Julie Trell, a human API (episode 15)

Julie Trell tells me she is a human API. Of course, I'm immediately curious! Of course, once she explains to me what that is, it all makes total sense. And no, I'm not giving a spoiler alert - you can listen to this episode 🙂  I first heard of Julie when I became...

Connecting through collaboration (episode 14)

I'm sure that most of us have been involved in a collaboration of some sort over the course of our working life. Sometimes they are great, sometimes they are most definitely NOT! We know that creating collaborative teams, whether in your organisation or more broadly...

Cameron Schwab is mostly known for being a former CEO of the Richmond, Melbourne and Fremantle AFL Clubs, and for being the youngest CEO in the history of AFL when he was appointed CEO of the Richmond Football Club at age 24. Today Cam is a leadership coach and...

Connect authentically (episode 12)

What does it mean to connect authentically? It can sometimes be confusing as authenticity is one of those words a lot of people use - and often overuse. I think it’s one of those concepts we recognise when it’s really obviously there – or not there! The Cambridge...

Connecting through laughter (episode 10)

Earlier this week my friend Emma put up a post on Facebook saying that when we are children we laugh 400x a day. And now as adults, we laugh an average of 15x a day. This got me thinking. Why is this? And why is laughter so important? And how can we connect through...

Kate Billing and I met when we both started at Thought Leaders Business School on the same day, about two and a half years ago. I immediately knew we would become firm friends, and we have. As well as being one of the smartest people I know, she is also kind,...
