    #170: Dale Sidebottom | Pulling up stumps for 2019

    #170: Dale Sidebottom | Pulling up stumps for 2019

    What an incredible year 2019 has been, and it's going to become even more magical on Saturday when I get to marry my fantastic partner Bree.

    Today's podcast, I reflect on the year that was and, share some extraordinarily open and honest feelings around myself. I am very proud of everything I have achieved this year, but I am also aware that when you keep pushing the limits something has to give, and the last two months for me have not been great. I will share this and much more today.

    Once again, thank you so much to everyone who has been a guest on the show, listened and provided us with some fantastic feedback. I love you all and can't wait for an epic 2020 together. But for now, I am hanging the microphone up as I need a break. Thanks for listening, cheers Dale.

    #169: Prof Alison James | Engaging Imaginations

    #169: Prof Alison James | Engaging Imaginations

    As a child, Lego consumed my life, and to be honest, whenever someone mentions the word Lego, it makes me smile as I had so many amazing memories playing with Lego while I was growing up. The reason I mentioned this is because today's guest is a Lego Serious Play instructor and travels the globe helping individuals engage their imaginations through the power of play, Lego, and so much more.

    Professor Alison James is one impressive human and has more energy than most, which I absolutely love. Alison is a Professor of Learning and Teaching, Director of Academic Quality and Development at the University of Winchester as well as a TEDx speaker, keynote speaker and an author of two fantastic books that we will mention in today's show.

    The big takeaways from this chat are around the four touchstones that Alison feels need to be involved in everyone's work and life which are connection, involvement, enjoyment and inclusion.

    #168: Rob Angel | The Pictionary Creator

    #168: Rob Angel | The Pictionary Creator

    Growing up in the Sidebottom household as a kid, one of the most played board games was Pictionary. Our family loved this game, and we had so many fun memories playing it together. This was all thanks to, today's guest Ron Angel as he created this fantastic board games as a 26-year-old.

    At 26 years-old today's guest, Rob Angel was working evenings as a waiter, while spending days in his back yard with a paperback Webster’s Dictionary, a No. 2 pencil and a yellow legal pad, creating the phenomenally successful board game Pictionary.

    Rob and his friends built the first 1000 games together in his tiny one-bedroom apartment. They did not have some how-to-manual to follow when it came to creating a board game. They just did what they loved. Rob and his mates followed their intuition. They worked hard at it day in and day out, keeping an unwavering entrepreneurial spirit of building Pictionary into the global powerhouse that was its destiny.

    For the next 17 years, this relentless dedication resulted in distribution in 65 countries in 45 languages, with over 38 Million Pictionary games being enjoyed by people from diverse cultures and backgrounds around the world. Rob sold the brand to Mattel, Inc., in 2001 who now proudly carries on and continues the game's legacy.

    Today Rob shares this epic journey and so much more. If you would like to sign up for his upcoming book or follow him on Instagram, you can do so on the links below:

    #166: Gary Nowak | Business advice from the master

    #166: Gary Nowak | Business advice from the master

    Gary Nowak is an international businessman who I have had the pleasure of not only learning from but also had Gary as a mentor for the past year. As you will hear in today's episode, we had the pleasure of hiking the Inca trail together in Peru over new years just gone. During this trip, Gary and I formed a close bond which has continued since returning to Melbourne.

    Gary is a partner at KPMG in Melbourne and has worked all over the world which he will share with us today. During his impressive career, he has formed fantastic principals and concepts that he is now helping others grow and develop with. Gary has been an outstanding mentor to me, and it would have been unfair for me not to share his wisdom with you all.

    In today's podcast, Gary will share what he feels are ways individuals can thrive in the workplace whatever their chosen career or goals might be.
