The life of David Campese from the suburbs to international rugby legend RUGBY LEGEND

Podcast cover
Read more

David Campese is one of Australia's greatest Rugby Union players, he is also a controversial voice in what can often now be called a vanilla arena. When the court of public opinion no longer allows for the voices of individuals it is good to see that some great stars are still willing to say what they believe. I taught David how to create Podcasts so he can share his own and his professional rugby alumni's thoughts and opinions in a genuine and relaxed manner. But as an introduction, I thought I might soundbite his life story and here it is. You can also listen to Davids Podcasts by following this link

She has perfected an art form, in latex and thigh high boots with a whip and a few other tools of the trade. Some would call her a therapist, some a master... but everyone that visits her professionally is considered a slave.

The Life of Jane Lu from pretending to go to work to CEO and Founder of Showpo

Podcast cover
Read more

Most of my interviews center around remarkable men and women that have lived a relatively full life (they make better interview guests) but every now and again I am convinced to interview someone younger. In this case Jane Lu did not disappoint. She is an incredible young woman. Launching a fashion label behind her strict parents backs while they thought she was at her corporate job, Jane has built and incredible business and community.

Her success lies in the ability to read female fashion trends and much like Zara she delivers fast fashion that is sexy and on trend. But this is not Jane's most impressive skill. What Jane does very well is offer a real look into how young women think, dress and feel. Her social media posts are real, transparent and fun. She is nothing other than herself and everyone loves her.

Jane Lu founded Showpo back in 2010 from her parents’ garage. Jane previously worked in accounting and corporate finance, but after returning from a year abroad, was inspired to ditch the “cubicle life”, so she quit her job to start her own business.

With so much enthusiasm for entrepreneurship, she set off to start her first business, which failed spectacularly. However, Jane was undeterred and got right back on the horse, starting the online fashion brand, Showpo the following month.

What started off with a laptop and two shelves of clothing is now an online global fashion empire, shipping to 80 countries. Through being disruptive in the retail space and capitalising on the use of social media, Showpo now boasts a cult social following of over 2.8 million.

Jane is a keynote speaker, is heavily involved in Australia’s startup scene and has been nominated for numerous awards, taking the title of Cosmopolitan’s Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015 and Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia in 2016.

The life of Narelle Anderson from employee to indigenous land cleaner

Podcast cover
Read more

Narelle Anderson is the founder and managing director of Envirobank, Australia’s largest network of reverse vending machines and automated recycling depots.  In 2000 she was the first aboriginal woman (she is the great niece of the late Senator Neville Bonner) to solely own a waste management company, buying and expanding CBD Enviro Services, then selling through a trade sale to a public company. In 2008 she founded Envirobank Recycling and introduced Australia to the concept of Reverse Vending Technology. Initially starting the business to reward and incentivize consumers for recycling, this technology is now going to underpin the Container Deposit Schemes being rolled out across Australia. In December this year NSW becomes the first state (after longstanding SA and NT) to legislate a Container Deposit Schemes. Like her great uncle she is passionate about indigenous welfare and has achieved many firsts as an indigenous woman and entrepreneur. In Narelle’s words ‘my culture makes me a custodian of the land so cleaning up the country seems a natural fit. Narelle is a self starter, she has developed a business few women would consider and she has been very successful both financially and from a business perspective. Interviewing her was a intense because as with all successful  individuals their journey is never easy and is often peppered with challenge and loss. Narelle gives us a beautiful account of her life to date and I can only expect that she will continue to make us very proud.

The Life of Stephen Todd from beading bras to hobnobbing with fashion icons

Podcast cover
Read more

Stephen Todd is fun, intelligent, accomplished and humble. Born in Yallourn, raised in Melbourne he moved to Paris age 30 to simply try somewhere new. That time turned about to be 20 years and took him from hand beading bras into the company of fashion gurus like Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood. In Paris he established himself as a writer and editor. He was the Paris fashion correspondent for The Australian for 14 years, as well as writing on architecture and design for a selection of papers including The New York Times, The Guardian, Le Monde and mags of merit most notably American Vogue. Stephen set up a Paris-based boutique branding and communications agency called concept+image in 2005, working in the luxury sector for clients including Moët & Chandon, Woolmark, Kopenhagen Fur, Swarovski and in 2008 he accepted an offer to become Director of Branding & Communications (Global) of Swarovski.

In 2010 Stephen decided it was time to head back to home to Sydney but on arrival he decided that if he was going to live in Australia he wanted to really live in Australia and so moved out to a small house on a large wheat and livestock property 5 hours inland, nearest town Forbes. Never far from the action however he is still travelling and is now Design Editor of the AFR Magazine and a weekly contributor to the Life&Leisure section. He is also at the helm of the features of Habitus quarterly, a section he has branded In Habitus Veritas. I expect he will never stop even when sequestered on a property 5 hours outside of the city.

Podcast cover

What does one say about Clive Burcham? Clive is a business maverick, social entrepreneur and a great single dad of two small children plus he can cook a very good lamb. This is a man on a mission, having grown up in the country, he lost his dad at the age of 8. and soon after he suffered abuse at the hands of a trusted member of the community. 

He has since gone on to become a well known businessman and has made media waves, some good, some not so good. Clive is a success story but it has come with its challenges.

Clive founded the successful branding agency The Conscience Organisation 14 years ago with Coca-Cola as its foundation client. He has worked with some of the most impressive brands in the country. But what really makes him tick is his passion for social change and he works closely with several organisations including OzHarvest, The Global Poverty Project and KidsXpress Limited to help achieve this. To me Clive epitomises a successful entrepreneur he is dynamic and fallible which makes him very relatable.

The Life of Chido Govera from Orphan at 7, abused at 6, to successful farmer

Podcast cover

Chido Govera offers one of the most inspiring and emotional interviews I have ever done. 

Chido Govera is a pioneer of hope. She grew up as an orphan in a small village in Zimbabwe. Following the death of her mother, she turned into a parent at the age of 7, mothering her brother and caring for her nearly-blind grandmother. At the age of 8, she had already experienced the worst possible sexual and physical abuse, inflicted by a close uncle. She promised herself then that when she was older, she would save and protect other orphans from experiencing what she, and so many others, had suffered. Turning down a marriage proposal at the age of 11, Chido chose to take fate into her own hands -- learning to farm mushrooms from local waste. She changed her journey to one of education and cultivation, she founded the Future of Hope Foundation and has now taught over 1,000 orphans and young women to take responsibility for their lives and see the opportunities around them. An incredible woman who offered a raw and honest story of her life journey. She is an inspiration.
