Liane Rossler

Infinitely creative people are to be admired. I am a frustrated architect in many ways as what I do, while requiring creative energy to be able to write and present to my clients, does not quite have the feel of a tangible product I can touch and feel at the end of the day. There is […]

Aleks Barnes

Leaders who use their brains and vision for the greater good are the best kind as far as I am concerned. Chasing fancy job titles and corporate ladder kudos is in many ways the path most travelled.

Lisa Messenger

Lisa Messenger is a woman whose energy and creative duress are worth a shout out. A successful publisher of a globally distributed print magazine ‘Renegade Collective in an era when those media magnates who’ve done it for 100 years are cutting their losses and running, Lisa clearly does what others would not even attempt. I […]

There are very few people in this world who impress me. Really. When by age of 25 you have interviewed dozens of Prime Ministers and celebrities, broken global front page stories and vacationed on Necker Island choosing beach towels with the likes of business legends such as Sir Richard Branson, Tommy Hilfiger and Felix Dennis, […]
