You have probably heard me say before that ‘leaders are learners’ (well, it’s hardly an original saying, is it)?

And what skills and capabilities did I really acquire while neglecting my law degree to work in the bars of Sydney’s Kings Cross in the early ‘80s?
Opportunities are in front of us every day, if we just choose to open ourselves up to the lessons.
