"Managing Through Turbulent Times" a seminar.

Today the Hunter Business Centre had a free seminar on called "as per blog title" :P It was fascinating. A guy from the Commbank descriped how the current global financial crisis has come about and how the panic in Australia is a result of how we are influenced (emotionally) by the US, even though we are actually powering ahead, with the second best economy in the world.

Did a bit of networking, listened to the speakers, but as you can see by the sketches below I got a bit distracted when they started talking numbers. These are preliminary sketches for one of Dad's developments. He's taking the old Merewether Surf House and knocking it's concrete rotted shell down, then building a gorgeous club/function room/restaurant thing. Wandered down there after the seminar and asked the hot surflife savers what colour their swimmers were. It's research, honest. They giggled.

I love the swimmers holding hands with hardhats.

Damn, I just wrote the biggest reply to you but the computer ate it :P

They're supposed to be swimmers caps. Don't think hardhats would work in the ocean. They really do look that dorky in real life too hahaha
