Incredible You

It’s the name of the wellness event celebrating the women of Melbourne taking place on Sunday 20 August in the south-east, tickets which can be booked here.  My Asian Australian friend and model, actor and graphic designer Shirlene Lai Allison is one of the speakers who will be talking about personal development and branding and she also asked me to write a few words on their Facebook page.  It is nice to share some words of wisdom amongst other women (and men!), my knowledge has been hard won as I’m sure is the case for many of you as well.  While I never enjoy making mistakes, I realise that I’ve always learnt something from the experience and it’s made me the person I am.

Speaking of interesting events, the Unicorn Festival is being held at Melbourne Central next Thursday 3 August with the level 2 link bridge being transformed into all things unicorn.  While the term ‘unicorn’ for me has meant more to do with start up companies like Google and Facebook, my Events colleague Pio who is Asian Australian was making me laugh at work calling himself a unicorn when he happened to be the only Asian at an all Anglo-Saxon wedding in Byron Bay a few months ago.

I also love these inflatable unicorns that would make the perfect little girl’s summer gift for those of you lucky enough to have a pool, although these flamingoes by Sunnylife look just as fun, and ridiculous, at the same time.  Can you tell I’m dreaming of warmer weather at the moment…I’ll be back with more later this week.
