Exciting Bondi Beach Radio show for Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! this week as we catch-up with Bec Scott, co-founder & CEO of STREAT, a social enterprise set-up to stop youth homelessness.
 
With what started as an idea on the streets of Vietnam, STREAT has rapidly evolved from their very 1st food cart in Melbourne’s iconic tourist destination Federation Square in 2010 to multiple STREAT cafes/venues around Melbourne, a Friends of STREAT cookbook and designer coffee all available for purchase online with funds going back to training and providing jobs for our homeless youth.
 
It’s wonderful to be able to share the STREAT story with my Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet and Bondi Beach Radio audience! 
 
To experience the outlook of a human like Bec Scott who’s not only making a selfless, positive impact on the world around her, but a self-sustaining and ever-growing one.
 
I only hope this show can inspire you to do the same! Let’s get into it!

Westfield Bondi Junction Mardi Gras street art. A masterclass in experiential brand activation!

Posted on Updated on

Westfield Bondi Junction Mardi Gras street art. A masterclass in experiential brand activation!

Love this!

 
Westfield Bondi Junction have created an absolute masterclass in experiential brand activation to celebrate Sydney’s iconic Mardi Gras. Simple, stylish and elegant, this beautiful street art creation taps into the perfect storm of global pop culture, human behaviour, a hallmark event on Sydney’s yearly calendar, is situated in one of Australia’s highest foot traffic locations and blends the physical and virtual worlds to a T.
 
And the best part? They own advertising/media space and the artwork wouldn’t have cost much at all (in the scheme of things).
The only cherry I would have placed on top is a #MardiGras hashtag in the artwork so that when people upload their content to Instagram or Twitter it drives exponentially increased visibility through digital search, but when everything else has been executed so beautifully, all I really have to say is…
 
Well played, Westfield Bondi Junction, well played 👏👏👏

Excited to catch-up with Two Space co-founder and social entrepreneur, Tashi Dorjee!

Indirectly, my connection with Tashi is actually the reason Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! is now a weekly show on Bondi Beach Radio.
 
Tashi and I met at the Two Space co-working space for start-ups and entrepreneurs at the Kings Cross Hotel a few weeks back and I just had to get him on the show to tell his story.
 
Partnering with Optus and Amazon, TwoSpace connects underutilised spaces with a community of entrepreneurs, creating unique spaces that help businesses start, connect and grow.
 
We also chat about his work with Carbon Conservation, a business dedicated to conserving the rainforests of Indonesia and current protects 1 million hectares of rainforest and the introduction of Himalayan Chai into the Australian market back in the day by his grandmother, which went on to be adopted by Gloria Jeans and more.
 
Vast-ranging and fascinating chats and I just love meeting new people whom I feel like I’ve known for years. Tashi is a good one and Two Space is coming to Bondi Beach, so download this show to find out more!
 
Let’s get into it!

Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast with head brewer & co-founder of Newstead Brewing Company, Mark Howes.

 
As one of the pioneers of the burgeoning Brisbane craft beer scene, molecular bioscientist Mark Howes and the partners of Newstead Brewing Co founded their brewery in December 2013 and Mark had to make the rapid transition from 40 litre home-brewer to head brewer of Newstead Brewing Company.
 
With a 2nd Newstead brewery, bar and restaurant set to launch shortly across the road from Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium, the brainchild of the Howes clan (Peter, Heather and Mark) and Michael Conrad has gone from strength-to-strength.
Super 1-on-1 podcast about taking the leap of faith from the safety of a 9-5 to running your own successful business. Bite off more than you can chew and then chew like hell. Very exciting!
 
Let’s get into it!

Let’s get started today! 

Australia Day. Striving for a culture of inclusiveness. #ChangeTheDate

Posted on

img_7150

I love Australia… I want to be able to celebrate Australia, wave my flag on Australia Day & be proud of everything that we are… 

This is a phrase that I am sure is true to all of us… indigenous Australians, Asians, Indians, Greeks, Italians, black, white, green, gold… no matter what part of planet earth your ancestors might originate from… all of us in this wide brown land are boat people and of late I have been thinking a LOT about the cultural significance of Australia Day & its lack of inclusiveness for everyone.

If you are in need of further food for thought, keen to learn more or garner an inside perspective from the inside looking out, then I’d ask that you watch this video below by Carla McGrath of Get Up! or download these free podcasts that Australian comedian Wil Anderson has recorded with talented indigenous Australians, Adam Briggs (hip hop artist, writer and comedian) or Cleverman creator Ryan Griffen. These inspiring podcasts are not just focused on the Australia Day issue, but are also wonderful ranging chats with 2 of our brightest creative stars.

Yes, I am a privileged, middle-class, white Australian male who grew up not really knowing, understanding, appreciating or exploring the  dirty, little, not-so-secret of the history of our country… because it’s not ingrained in our schools and education enough and I didn’t try hard enough. We smash beers on Australia Day whilst listening triple j’s Hottest 100, without paying regard or a modicum of respect to the first settlers of this land, who have been here tens of thousands of years… And yet we’ve only been celebrating a 26th of January for 21 years! So why can’t we change the date?

I love this country with all my heart, warts and all. But I’m frustrated by so many elements that hold us back from being one of the most amazing and progressive nations on the planet (Australia Day, marriage equality, casual racism and deplorable internet speeds to name but a few). We only need to look at our cousins in New Zealand to feel ashamed and see how much further advanced we could be in a number of these issues.

I want to be able to celebrate Australia, how much it means to me, to wave my flag on Australia Day, drink some beers & be proud of everything that we are… But I can’t. Not until we change the date. So until that time, my Australia Days will be a little more low key than I’d like them to be and I will use this article that I’ve written today as a promise.

I will use the tools of influence that I have built for myself and my brand… my Bondi Beach Radio show, my Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! podcast, blog and social media channels as a platform to learn more about my fellow Australians and champion their stories and perspectives, so that we can no only #ChangeTheDate, but evolve into a more open society and country where everyone feels welcome… in their own country and their own home.

I look forward to a day where all Aussies can celebrate #AustraliaDay as 1. Black, White, Green, Gold, Straight, Gay, LGBTQA.. Here’s hoping! 😃🌈❤
