The great thing about my job is… Making a difference for the industry in the NT.

The challenge for industry is… Understanding, connecting and promoting the legacy outcomes of the business events industry.

My greatest achievement is… Still to come.

The biggest thing in MICE this year will be… Uluru’s new Meeting Place – it will set the benchmark for all regional conferencing venues.

I try to relax by… Enjoying some downtime with friends at home amongst the tropical gardens with a bottle or two.

I don’t understand why… The Shire is still on TV.

Currently the album playing on my iPod is… Elephant – Tame Impala.

My favourite venue is… Ooraminna Homestead in Alice Springs – for those of you who have been, you’ll know why…

I am scared to death of… Writing budgets.

I can’t live without… My wife.

Blackberry or iPhone… Neither – Samsung Galaxy, best phone by far.

I really wish I had… Gone home a little earlier from the MEA final night party.

If I could invite four people to a dinner party, they’d be… Gina Reinhart, Andrew Forrest, Wayne Swan & Clive Palmer.  It would be the funniest dinner party ever!
