While this vision board may be masquerading as my personally branded web site, at the heart of it, this is an online hub for my purest ideas, fears, dreams, triumphs and hard-fought lessons.

This is a space I have curated to not only showcase what my life as Founder and CEO of HR company wattsnext is really all about , but this space serves as a far more personal arena where I can, among many things:

  • Candidly share my biggest musings and fiercest struggles facing modern companies of all shapes and sizes.
  • Reflect on my own journey heading up a rapidly expanding business that has offices in Brisbane and Sydney and services clients all over Australia.
  • Grapple with the highs and lows that have taken me from my start-up days to the new challenges of leading an established business and now heading back to start-up days with some ventures brewing.
  • Create a photographic and visual display of the powerful quotes, photo-worthy moments, including my obsessive connection to New York and everything in between.
  • Fuel healthy debates on work, passion, life and success and hopefully light the fires in the belly of other entrepreneurs across Australia and beyond.

Looking forward to having you all on my journey. Along the way, I hope you too can find nuggets of gold that resonate and rumble through my blogs, presentation and speaker engagements and random declarations of vulnerability.

Let’s do this.

My regular dose of blogging is part cathartic therapy, part celebration and plenty of quirkiness. After all, being a true leader is about sharing who we are when we are free to dance to our own beat.
