Tuesday I had breakfast with past Melbourne Cup champions, Rogan Josh and Brew in the mounting yard at Flemington and I held the 18 carrot gold Melbourne cup (with white gloves on).
Later in the afternoon I met and held a bunch of reptiles, quite the experience.
Wednesday I’d lost my voice – so for our fabulous lunch and learn with Michael Ebied Executive Director, Corporate Strategy & Marketing for the ABC – Kristie sat in for me and asked the questions. By Friday I met with the RedBalloon Customer Experience team, then I spoke at PwC about gifting strategies – there was not much left of me really, no voice. Then my colleague and I Georgia flew to the Gold Coast for the most perfect weekend retreat at Gwinganna – what a delight. More on that in the next post.
