Naomi Simson speaker

Interesting little transition last week in the life on Naomi Simson – I was asked on three separate occasions to contribute to something – because I write this blog. I found that fascinating. I was introduced on Channel Nine’s Mornings program as ‘one of Australia’s leading business bloggers’ – I was asked to be a guest tweeter for ABCs Lateline on Tuesday – and I was asked to attend the BB Retail Capital conference (of Adairs, Bras and things, Diva etc fame) because I was a blogger…. (I did in fact attend because I have met Brett Blundy on a number of occasions and I wondered what I could learn about his views on the changes and trends in traditional retail).

I sat next to Brett as the sessions of his leaders conference unfolded – the session I attended was around accountability – and what does that really mean to each individual and leader in his businesses. I picked up some little books that they give to each employee about their vision, customer promise and their team promise. I was impressed with the resources, focus and commitment that the group has to keeping the leadership team learning and aligned.

Tuesday last week was a very exciting day for all RedBallooners as Millie Fastnedge Evans arrived. Jemma CEO has handed the baton (a little sooner than expected to Kristie Buchanan – who will be acting CEO until Jemma’s return from maternity leave)…  Kristie started her career at RedBalloon a marketing manager and more recently has been the GM of Consumer – accountable for the Customer Experience. Congratulations Kristie.
