By admin

The great thing about my job is… It’s dynamic.

The challenge for industry is… Working together to advocate that business events are relevant to the whole of the economy not just the tourism industry.

My greatest achievement is… Skiing the South Face, Mt Hutt NZ, non-stop, without wiping out.

The biggest thing in MICE this year will be… Connectivity – making the most out of each international opportunity, rather than seeing other Australian destinations as competition. 

I try to relax by… Getting away on the boat.

I don’t understand why… My family bought me Russell Coight’s All Aussie Adventures for father’s day.

Currently the album playing on my iPod is… The National- High Violet.

My favourite venue is… Too many to name around Tasmania.

I am scared to death of… Blue Bottles (land & sea).

I can’t live without… Regularly diving into the ocean.

Blackberry or iPhone… iPhone.

I really wish I had… A pet Crayfish.

If I could invite four people to a dinner party, they’d be… Sarah Blasko, Russell Coight (Glenn Robbins), Nick Riewoldt and Reg Mombasso.
